RHA publishes vision to decarbonise freight and logistics

Added: 10 February 2020

The Road Haulage Association has published a new strategy paper setting out its approach to decarbonising the freight and logistics sector.

With the environment at the heart of the recent General Election, the paper calls on the new Government to develop a freight roadmap which delivers the stepping stones needed to achieve a net zero carbon future.  

The issue of decarbonising freight needs a coherent international and national response and it is vital that the freight and logistics sector is on the front foot to shape the reforms necessary. 

“How the change is managed politically and economically over the next 25 years will be challenging,” RHA Chief Executive Richard Burnett said.  “Our strategy sets out an approach that will ensure that sensible, evidence-based and pragmatic policies are in place to support investment in the green technology needed.

“The time for talking about the environment is over.  We need clear global action to tackle climate change, and I am determined that the UK logistics sector will do its bit.  The Government must ensure supportive policies exist that give our members the confidence to plan for a green future.  By contrast, policy ‘mis-steps’ such as clean air zones which have undermined trust must be avoided.”
