There will be a drive to find new finance to decarbonise transport to implement the Paris Agreement, the president of France announced at the G20 summit.
Emmanuel Macron went into the G20 conference with an announcement that he wanted to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2040 in France, in a bid to keep up momentum on the agreement to address dangerous climate change by curbing carbon emissions. His finale was to announce that, two years on from the pact this December, there would be a summit to mobilise funding in order to implement measures to cut carbon, including to de-carbonise transport.
France will aim to become entirely carbon neutral by 2050, as transport emissions fail to fall in the UK, with greater take-up of electric cars needed according to the Committee on Climate Change. London Mayor Sadiq Khan hailed Macron's "leadership" with the move to incentivise a switch from fossil fuel-powered vehicles.
