The Key to Achieving Long-Term Sustainable Benefits for Transport: EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class 2H 2019 Retrospective


See Related event

Transportation is responsible for large volumes of carbon and air quality emissions in the UK. Recent strategies to reduce the emissions from the sector have focussed on a mass switch over to low and zero emissions drive train technologies such as bio-diesel, gas and electric. Whilst such solutions directly reduce the emissions of the sector, “decarbonisation”, as Eunomia’s Ann Ballinger and Dr Gavin Bailey pointed out at EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class 2H 2019 earlier this month, “is not a panacea for the negative externalities of the transport sector. As our understanding of the science and engineering relating to carbon and air quality emissions from transportation develops it is becoming apparent that a more holistic approach is required to address the direct and in-direct impacts of the sector”.

Ann and Gavin’s presentation overviewed the carbon and air quality issues in transportation affecting local authorities; put forward two core strategies for mitigating the impacts of transportation-based emissions, providing specific soft and hard solutions that are available to Local Authorities; and outlined required next steps to move forwards. They also helped identify in their discussions some of the key issues within local authorities relating to transport-based emissions; opportunities, and potential barriers to the implementation of solutions amongst local authorities; and stakeholders who should be included in emissions reducing transportation solutions.
