The Art of Seeing

Greener Transport Solutions logo Published on: 6th November 2023 by Claire Haigh.

Our world is fragmented, disordered and chaotic.  We are out of alignment with ourselves and the environment on which we depend.  Anthropogenic climate change has been allowed to grow like a cancer with the potential to destroy the world as we know it.  This is where our best thinking has got us.  Greener Vision is…

The Politics of Net Zero

Greener Transport Solutions logo Published on: 19th October 2023 by Claire Haigh.

2023 is likely to be the world’s hottest year on record[i]. Record breaking heatwaves hit much of continental Europe, resulting in lethal flash floods and wildfires.  There have been deadly and devastating floods in Libya, fires in Hawaii and typhoons in China.  Pope Francis warns that the world may be “nearing breaking point”.

Net zero policy in the UK has hit a new low. Before the cries of indignation – yes, it is true that the UK once had a record to be proud of. We were the first advanced economy to commit to net zero by 2050, our economy has grown by 65% whilst emissions reduced by…

A Vision for Change

Greener Transport Solutions logo Published on: 6th June 2023 by Greg Marsden.

The recent publication of my analysis of the downgrading of transport decarbonisation ambition as set out in the Carbon Budget Delivery Plan (Reverse Gear) is a pretty depressing read. 72% of the ambition for change set out in 2021 seemingly set aside. The analysis shows that, even with the ZEV Mandate emissions from vehicles will…

The fight of our lives

Greener Transport Solutions logo Published on: 12th December 2022 by Claire Haigh.

The past eight years have been the hottest in recorded history.  Despite achieving an historic breakthrough on a new “loss and damage” fund, COP27 failed to move the dial on reducing emissions. We are nowhere near the scale of change needed.  As the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres put it: “We are in the fight…
