How rail can play its part in decarbonising transport

Want to join us for the next TransCityRail? TransCityRail Midlands takes place on 10th Feb 2022. View the full agenda here.

Rail travel is already a relatively low-carbon method of transportation, accounting for less than 2.5% of overall transport emissions and about 0.6% of the UK’s total emissions. But improvement and changes are needed - essential as net-zero targets loom and the future of our planet hangs in the balance.

Following the Department for Transport's Transport Decarbonisation plan TransCityRail North host Helen Fospero is joined by Kim Yates, Technical Principal - Sustainability, Mott MacDonald, Sue Percy, CEO CIHT, CIHT, James Brewer, Head of Rail, BEIS and Elaine Clark, CEO, Rail Forum Midlands to discuss the role that the rail sector can play to achieve the goal of transport cutting its emissions by 50% by 2030.

Points discussed include the integration of modes of transport, how the supply chain can do more to understand their own carbon footprint and the need to enhance green skills.

The next TransCityRail live event takes place in the Midlands on the 10th Feb.
