Planning a route to sustainable transport

Publication date:
March 2022

In the UK, transport became the largest sectoral emitter of greenhouse gases in 2016, growing to account for 27 per cent of national emissions by 2019. This edition of the journal examines the need for and some of the components of a sustainable and decarbonised transport future and how they may work together. Read about vehicle and fuel options, the opportunities presented by 15-minute cities, how we can enable sustainable consumer behaviour change, air quality and health co-benefits of sustainable transport, a case study of the Solent future transport zone, and more.
