In Discussion with Rain Newton-Smith, CBI Chief Economist

As businesses across the UK continue to navigate through these unprecedented times, we are delighted to be joined by Rain Newton-Smith, CBI Chief Economist and CBI COP26 Lead for an in-depth discussion on the decarbonisation of transport to achieve net zero.

Transport accounts for around a third of UK carbon emissions, while 20% of all distanced travelled pre-pandemic happened on commutes. If the UK is to meet its obligations to reach net zero by 2050, businesses and government must therefore transform how we use transport in the future.

Join us for this roundtable to explore: 

  • Policy changes needed to drive new investments in sustainable transport
  • Actions businesses can take to reduce emissions from the transport they use and purchase
  • Support the change in commuting habits
  • Meeting the delivery challenge at scale.
