Ultra Low Carbon Truck strategy

30 June 2010 #Environment #Reports Archive

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) launched its Ultra Low Carbon Truck strategy at its 2010 International Automotive Summit in London.  The aim is to help truck makers and operators deliver ever more efficient and thus lower carbon transport for the UK.

The main points of the strategy are:

  • Cutting emissions depends on cutting fuel use.
  • Success is as much in the hands of operators as vehicle makers.
  • Authorities need to agree a way to measure truck and freight CO2emissions.
  • Low carbon technology needs to be proven.
  • Operators need incentives to use low carbon technologies.
