CCC Chief Executive, Chris Stark, responds to the Prime Minister’s announcement on electric vehicle funding at the Zero Emission Vehicle Summit in Birmingham.
New evidence suggests that recently-introduced EU emissions tests for cars and vans are already being manipulated by car manufacturers. Ellie Davies, the CCC’s Transport Analyst, explains why that’s bad news for the UK’s climate change targets, and the public.
The Road to Zero Strategy contains welcome ambition to increase the number of electric vehicles on UK roads by 2030 and to increase new charging infrastructure in homes and on streets. But there are many missed opportunities too, the CCC says.
In this report the Committee sets out four key messages to Government to put emissions reductions on track, based on the lessons of the last decade.
Ten years after the Climate Change Act came into force, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) says the Government must learn the lessons of the last decade if it is to meet legally-binding targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the 2020s and 2030s. Unless action is taken now, the public faces an unnecessarily expensive […]
A letter from the Committee on Climate Change to the Rt. Hon. Chris Grayling MP, Secretary of State for Transport, about the Airports National Policy Statement.
Transport accounts for a higher share of overall UK greenhouse gas emissions than any other sector of the economy. As the Commission on Travel Demand publishes its first report, the CCC’s Transport Team Leader Ewa Kmietowicz, says the time may now be ripe for policymakers to reframe their approach.
Sales of electric vehicles (EVs) are rising, as is demand for charging points. New research commissioned by the CCC shows that although there are challenges to extending the public EV charging network, Britain is well placed to increase both the number and distribution of chargers and kick-start an EV revolution, says Ellie Davies.
This is a letter from Lord Deben, Chairman of the Committee on Climate Change, to Chris Grayling MP, Secretary of State for Transport, about the Government's 'Road to Zero' Strategy which aims to reduce emissions from UK road transport.
The Government’s Clean Growth Strategy, required under the Climate Change Act, sets out the next steps to reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions and tackle climate change. Although ambitious, the Strategy does not go far enough. Urgent action is needed to flesh out current plans and proposals, and supplement them with additional measures, to meet […]
