Transport accounts for 26% of UK greenhouse gas emissions, making it the highest emitting sector

Whether moving freight or passengers, transportation plays a major role in our society and economy. The transport sector can be broadly divided into four main areas – air, road, rail and marine. Currently, transport accounts for approximately one fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions due to its heavy reliance on energy-dense fossil fuels. Transport emissions reduction potential exists through changes such as modal shift, behavioural change, technological advancements, the use of non-fossil fuels and new business models.
