Supporting transport decarbonization with standards
The transport sector is one of the UK’s largest emitters of CO2 and a major source of air pollution in cities. Decarbonizing transport is, therefore, essential if the UK is to meet its goal of net zero emissions by 2050. While the path to solving these issues is far from certain, steps are being made to address this.
In July 2021, on the day the UK Government released its Transport Decarbonization Plan, BSI brought together policy makers, industry experts and representatives from local transport authorities to speak about how this pathway can be followed to create the infrastructure for zero-emission vehicles – to help hit the goal of decarbonizing domestic transport by 2050.
This conversation has led to the production of our latest report, focusing on key areas of road transport decarbonization and the challenges of transitioning to a cleaner, more sustainable transport system. The report also explores:
- the impacts of existing transport modes on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
- key drivers of and barriers to decarbonization
- the challenges of creating the charging infrastructure for zero-emission vehicles
- ongoing industry and government work to decarbonize road transport
- the role of standards and next steps.
