UK "can cut car emissions by 30 per cent in 2030"

New report identifies high potential for road transport CO2 cuts through new technology

The UK can achieve a 30 per cent cut in carbon dioxide emissions from road transport by 2030, according to a new report prepared for the country's finance ministry.  Author Julia King, a former director at Rolls-Royce, says car emissions per kilometre could be halved by then.  But this would be offset by an increase in distance travelled.  The reduction can be achieved "at low cost" through a combination of cleaner fuels, new vehicle technology and "smart consumer choices," Ms King says.  See press release and King report.
