The automobile industry has been emerging as an exemplar for successful collaboration between industry, policy makers and other stakeholders in recent years with Government, at national and European levels; providing generally clear and consistent policy signals to encourage the introduction of greener, lower carbon and more efficient vehicles.

Carbon emissions from new cars sold in the UK have fallen by 30 per cent since 2000. In recent years, the UK motor sector has been a bright spot in a generally bleak economic picture with many examples of significant investment, particularly in electric/hybrid vehicle production and other low carbon technologies which have provided jobs and growth, often in regions of otherwise low growth and weak economic prospects.

Experience from the road transport sector will be compared and contrasted with experience from other sectors by a collection of leading policy and industry speakers and commentators.

Join us to at this free to attend event, hosted by the sustainability hub and the LowCVP, and chaired by James Murray, editor of BusinessGreen.

Thursday 10 April 12.30-5.00, RICS, 12 Great George Street, London SW1P 3AD
