Greener Transport Solutions is dedicated to the decarbonisation of transport.
Transport is the fastest growing source of global greenhouse gas emissions. The growing urgency of the climate crisis, and its disproportionate impact on the poorest in society, requires us to develop solutions to decarbonise transport rapidly and at scale.
We aim to transform our communities into cleaner, greener, less congested and more prosperous places to live and work, where greener transport is the affordable and desirable choice for everyone.
Through the Transport Knowledge Hub we work with central and local Government, Sub-national Transport Bodies, Combined Authorities, Local Enterprise Partnerships, and the wider transport community to encourage investments that will facilitate inclusive and sustainable economic growth.
The current focus of our work is a thought leadership programme aimed at developing a credible and deliverable framework for decarbonising transport whilst mitigating any negative social impacts. The work aims to build support for some of the politically challenging solutions needed if we are to achieve our carbon reduction targets.
Greener Transport Solutions is a not for profit organisation. We are very grateful to the Foundation for Integrated Transport for providing grant funding to support our work developing a ‘Manifesto for Decarbonising Transport’.
Greener Transport Solutions was set up by Claire Haigh, formerly CEO of sustainable transport group Greener Journeys. Greener Transport Solutions’ work is overseen by the Greener Transport Council of leading academics and experts.
