Government must take action to reduce carbon emissions from freight

17 April 2019

Responding to the publication of the National Infrastructure Commission’s report, Better Delivery: the challenge for freight, today, Darren Shirley, Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport, said:  

"The freight sector needs to do its part to reduce emissions and tackle air pollution, so this is an important issue that has been raised by the Commission. The Government must now take action to address these issues so transport can help the UK as a whole meet its legally binding obligations.”
