On election day, more than any other; independent of individual or collective political view; remain or stay; there is much need to remember the importance of collaboration for real action and to be aware of the great co-operative work happening at European level that takes action on the climate crisis directly.
Yesterday the European Commission, released the much-awaited EU Green Deal, which sets out how it intends to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent. The framework takes into account not only emissions, but boosting innovation, modern mobility and food quality.
And today, Tevva as an active member of ALICE, is participating in the ALICE-EU plenary, along with other member industry operators and manufacturers across Europe. There, a new Roadmap towards Zero Emission logistics has been launched – this practical, action-orientated approach is aimed at helping the four key stakeholder groups (Government, Companies, R&D, Civil Society) to take action in five key areas (based on a model first published by Alan McKinnon) and provides a useful blueprint on how to decarbonise freight transport and logistics. One of its authors, Sophie Punte, Executive Director of the Smart Freight Centre explains how companies can put this roadmap into action.
Consultation with stakeholders, as part of the process of developing this practical guide, identified strong consensus that there is no ‘silver bullet’, one-size-fits-all solution; however, renewable energy in combination with electrification, hybrids and hydrogen came out as the top most feasible and highest impact solution.
Whatever the election outcome tomorrow, the UK must still lead the charge and collaborate for real action and the bigger picture on climate change.
