Transport has a key role to play in cutting carbon emissions and improving air quality as well as making our city regions more climate resilient and bio-diverse. To achieve this we will need to make more journeys by more sustainable means.
We also need to decarbonise urban vehicle fleets and make the connections across transport, energy and the built and natural environments.
Making the connections on climate
The world is facing a climate crisis. We need to move beyond a siloed approach to reducing carbon emissions from different sectors - including transport - in isolation and instead seek to make more connections between those sectors.
How we work on sustainability
Rebecca Fuller, Interim Director, is the lead staff member for our work on sustainability.
