In the fight against climate change, transport is one of the toughest challenges. It’s the only sector where CO2 emissions are still rising, and it accounts for more than a fifth of UK emissions. Nearly 60% of these emissions are from cars, with no sign of abating. Car traffic is 87% greater than in 1980 and still rising, making the UK the most car dependent country in Europe.
