The transport sector accounts for around a third (27%) of UK carbon emissions. Meanwhile, transport fuel combustion generates a fifth (24%) of global carbon emissions. The electrification of transport will be key to changing these statistics.

Join us on 6 July, 12:00 – 17:00 GMT+1 to explore how the rollout of electric vehicles is being supported around the world, part of our Green, Fair Future programme of events in the run up to November’s COP26 climate change talks in Glasgow.

We are determined not just to do everything we can to support a carbon-neutral future in the UK, but to use COP26 to accelerate greener, fairer energy globally through collaboration on learnings and best practice.
