Journey to Net Zero

Transport accounts for 43% of all carbon emissions in Gloucestershire, making it an important focus for carbon reduction.

The county council has committed to reducing carbon emissions from all sources in the county to net zero by 2045 and to reduce emissions by 80% by 2030. Through Climate Leadership Gloucestershire, the council works with partners to take forward Gloucestershire’s response to the climate emergency. The county council is leading on decarbonising transport.

The Decarbonising Transport Forum ‘Journey to Net Zero’ was held in July 2022 to discuss with key stakeholder how to decarbonise transport by working together with groups across the county. A summary engagement feedback report provides further detail on the comments and discussion on the scale of the challenge. The event aimed to start a conversation about decarbonising transport in the county. You can view the decarbonising transport forum presentations.

Public engagement

To continue the engagement started at the forum, Gloucestershire County Council recently held a public engagement survey. This was an opportunity for residents, businesses and organisations, community groups, transport interest groups, councils, and parishes to give their views on how to prioritise transport measures to reduce transport carbon emissions and reach net zero by 2045.

We are analysing the feedback of that survey and will publish the report in April 2023.
