The strategy sets out the ambitious goal of achieving near-zero carbon emissions from surface transport by 2045.
Among the potential actions and areas of focus the strategy considers are:
Zero emission vehicles, including cars, HGVs and buses, with a comprehensive network of charging facilities to support their wider use
The decarbonisation of the rail network through electrification
The use of hydrogen and alternative fuel vehicles
Encouraging modal shift towards more sustainable ways of travelling, such as public transport and active travel
Opportunities for decarbonisation in the freight industry
Carbon reduction when projects are built, as well as carbon capture
