The reducing environmental impacts strategic priority is in recognition that there is an environmental aspect to all transport, and therefore almost all the work of DfT. Transport is the largest emitting sector of greenhouse gases in the UK, contributing 27% of domestic emissions in 2019. Our transport system must change to deliver the government’s Net Zero ambition and DfT will drive forwards that change through our longer-term green transport agenda. On decarbonisation specifically, we published our Transport decarbonisation plan (TDP) in July 2021, which sets out the steps we will take to deliver the necessary carbon reductions across every form of transport. Sustainability will be at the heart of levelling-up. People everywhere will feel the benefits – villages, towns, cities, and countryside will be cleaner, greener, healthier and more prosperous and pleasant environments in which to live and work

The project focuses on assessing and reducing maritime emissions, but does not provide specific current levels or future predictions.
Achieving zero emissions from maritime transportation over the coming years and decades will require research, development, demonstration, and deployment at a massive scale. This requires enabling policies that incentivi...

The project aims to transition to net-zero emissions in the maritime sector, but does not provide specific current levels or future predictions.
The project is to evaluate the feasibility of creating an emission calculator for both individual ships and fleets that will integrate with our existing shipbroker product. It would enable charterers/shippers and fleet m...
