LowCVP announces three-year strategy

The Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) will announce its first ever three-year strategic work programme at a reception in Parliament today.

The LowCVP’s three-year strategy will have as a central aim for low emissions solutions while continuing to address supply-side ‘blockages’. The LowCVP will continue to embrace the air quality agenda and ensure that it complements the central mission; to deliver on the climate change targets in the context of road transport.

Road transport is an important sector in terms of its impact on emissions implicated in climate change, as well as health impacts caused by local pollution.

Transport Minister Jesse Norman MP, Shadow Transport Secretary Andy McDonald MP and Lilian Greenwood MP, Chair of the Transport Select Committee will all be at the LowCVP reception to learn more about the progress made over the last fifteen years, as well as the Partnership’s plans for the future. Over 40 parliamentarians have also registered their interest in attending the event, as well as more than 200 stakeholders in the low carbon/emissions transport agenda.

Transport Minister Jesse Norman MP said, ‘This Government is committed to improving air quality and tackling climate change. That is why we are investing almost £1.5 billion over this Parliament as part of the drive to reduce emissions from transport. The Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership continues to play a vital role in supporting these environmental targets.’
