Barriers to greener practices - Small and medium road freight operators:

9 Feb 2021

The Department for Transport (DfT) has identified barriers that may impact the ability of the small to medium operators to engage with emissions reduction and the greener agenda.  The document produced, and available via the link, explores those barriers preventing small and medium freight operators from adopting carbon emission reduction practices.

Research reasons were highlighted as:

  • why small and medium sized road freight operators are less likely to take up carbon emission reduction practices
  • how small and medium sized road freight operators can be encouraged to adopt carbon emission reduction practices

Additionally, the report explores the best ways to communicate with these businesses, which are generally considered hard to reach.

The Road to Zero strategy included a commitment to 15% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from heavy goods vehicles by 2025 compared to 2015 levels.
