Logistics UK launches Route to Net Zero campaign

Tunbridge Wells, UK: Logistics UK has launched a campaign to encourage its 18,000 members to commit to decarbonising their operations.

Route to Net Zero aims to help the UK achieve carbon neutrality ahead of the legal deadline of 2050.

Michelle Gardner, head of public policy at Logistics UK, said: “Logistics UK and its members understand the urgency of the climate crisis and are working hard to decarbonise logistics operations; we are pleased to launch this campaign to support and encourage the industry’s journey to net zero.

“A key component of this campaign’s success will be getting the right support from government; Logistics UK will be working in partnership with its members and government to help ensure the right policies, infrastructure, power supply, funding and vehicle markets are in place to realise the logistics industry’s net zero ambition.”

Logistics UK will launch a policy manifesto ahead of COP26 in November 2021.
