Cenex backs Low Emission Summit

Cenex has welcomed the announcement yesterday that that UK will host an international Zero Emission Vehicle Summit next autumn.

Cenex hosts Cenex-LCV, an event dedicated to low emission vehicles and technology. It has said it would be welcome the opportunity to collaborate with the government to ensure the Zero Emission Vehicle Summit is a success.

Robert Evans, CEO of Cenex, said, ’Cenex welcomes the Prime Minister’s message concerning the international Zero Emission Vehicle Summit and we offer our wholehearted support in making the Summit a resounding success.

‘The announcement is further evidence of the UK government’s commitment to playing an international role in policy leadership in relation to cutting greenhouse gas and pollutant emissions from road transport. It also demonstrates the government’s active support for the electrification of road transport, which is the only sure-fire way of delivering a global transition to zero emission transport.’

The Summit will bring together Ministers, industry leaders and sector representatives from around the world to further the development of the low emission and electric car market. It will also cement the UK’s position as a world leader in the low emission and electric vehicle industry and build on the government’s manifesto commitment for almost all cars and vans to be zero emission by 2050.
