Climate change is the most pressing environmental challenge of our time. There is overwhelming scientific evidence that we need to take action & in June 2019 UK became the first major global economy to pass a law that requires us to achieve ‘net zero’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050.
Transport has a huge role to play in the economy reaching net zero.
Hear from our speakers on this very interesting topic on “Zero Carbon Challenge – Transport”
