Smart Transport Conference to explore roadmap to decarbonising transport by 2050

Panel of speakers at Smart Transport Conference

The steps the UK needs to take to decarbonise all modes of transport by 2050 will be examined at the Smart Transport Conference this November.

Registration is now open for the in-person conference, which will bring together senior public sector policymakers at national and local level, and influential private sector leaders from across the UK’s transport sector on November 30 at County Hall, London in a Covid-secure environment.

This will be the first major industry-wide in-person gathering following COP26, the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, which closes on November 12, and high-profile speakers will examine the outcomes of COP26 for the transport sector.

Delegates will also have the chance to hear from Government officials and city leaders on their measures to decarbonise transport, following the publication of the Government’s transport decarbonisation plan.

Breakout sessions will look at key aspects of the plan in detail, putting the spotlight on the freight and logistics sector as it charts its course to net zero; examining the challenges around zero carbon infrastructure, which will be fundamental to decarbonising transport modes; and looking at the role of commuting and how businesses will be working with Government to change employee travel habits.

The burning questions: how much will decarbonising transport cost and who pays will also be discussed at the conference, as well as looking at opportunities for growth from e-scooters and active travel.

Our next event: Exploring the roadmap to decarbonising transport by 2050
