TEPR Projects: Low carbon transport
Transport contributes around one quarter of the economy’s greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change. Most of the greenhouse gas emissions that are emitted from transport are carbon dioxide (CO2) and reducing these is proving to be a challenge.
There are many different policies that can contribute to reducing transport’s CO2 emissions, many of which are complementary. In order to implement the right combination of measures, it is necessary to understand how different policies work together and what the wider impacts of implementing these policies might be.
Ian Skinner and TEPR have worked extensively on low carbon transport at a strategic level, including:
Ian Skinner of TEPR is also currently working on a project, as part of a team at DCA, to support a local authority in identifying how it might respond to its declaration of a climate emergency. For more information see our page about our potential support for local authorities that have declared a climate emergency.
Ian Skinner is also the author of the chapter on the EU’s policy on reducing CO2 emissions from transport, published in the Research Handbook on Climate Change Mitigation Law (Edward Elgar, Cheltenham, 2015).
