View original

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has published the final UK greenhouse gas emissions national statistics for 1990 – 2017. Overall, UK greenhouse gas emissions are estimated to have decreased 3% from 2016 owing to a decrease in the use of coal for electricity generation. This marks a 42% drop from 1990. The report finds that transport was the largest emitting sector of the UK greenhouse gas emissions in 2017, accounting for 27% of emissions. Furthermore, there was no change in emissions in the transport sector from 2016 – 17 and only a 2% decrease during the period 1990 – 2017.

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
