Transport Industry Forum work on net zero

21 Apr 2023

New industry and government forum launched

Energy and freight industry experts work together to support rail, road, air, maritime and warehousing reach net zero by 2050.

Measures to help boost the freight sector are moving forward as a new government-industry forum is launched to help the sector decarbonise and ensure its long-term sustainability.

Established as part of the Future of Freight plan, the Freight Energy Forum is meeting today to bring government and industry together to support the sector across all modes – including rail, road, air, maritime and warehousing – reach net zero by 2050.

The forum will discuss potential solutions that the sector could take to start reducing emissions now and, for the longer term, will look to create a plan or roadmap to roll out future clean energy infrastructure for the industry.

The forum will bring together expertise and senior representatives from across the energy and freight industries, including individual operating companies, national organisations and sector associations, such as the Road Haulage Association, Logistics UK and National Grid.

The forum will be chaired by the Department for Transport officials and will also include senior representatives from across government, including the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities and the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero.
