The delivery of place-based solutions to support the decarbonisation of local communities is a core component of the Department for Transport’s Decarbonising Transport plan.
So how can local authorities and sub-national transport bodies respond to the challenges of delivering rapid transport decarbonisation in different places across the UK?
Jonathan Foster-Clark from Atkins considers how we approach place-based decarbonisation in support of delivering Net Zero
We need a new model for mobility over the next decade, with transport serving the diverse needs of different places.
We need to be thinking about size, scale, and speed of change in delivering new mobility models for different places. This means recognising the size of the markets for travel – and targeting movements generating the most carbon.
It also means focusing on where we can deliver the most change: by reducing, shortening, and shifting trips. And it means acting boldly and at speed: what we can achieve over the next 5-10 years?
