On 3 March 2020, the Transport Knowledge Hub held a national workshop focused on how to provide a credible framework for the decarbonisation of transport.  The key question for discussion was:

“What would be a credible and politically deliverable framework for the decarbonisation of transport that will deliver the necessary emissions reductions in the shortest time possible whilst mitigating any negative social impacts?”

Professor Dieter Helm CBE, Professor of Economics, University of Oxford
