Fleets are being given the opportunity to help determine how the UK will achieve net zero emissions across every mode of transport by 2050.

The Department for Transport (DfT) is developing its Transport Decarbonisation Plan (TDP) to set out in detail what government, business and society will have to do to deliver the significant emissions reduction needed to meet its 2050 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions target.

As part of the consultation process, the DfT has released a document called ‘Decarbonising Transport: Setting the Challenge’ (DTSC) to provide context to the current challenges and steps to be taken when developing the TDP.
