Zemo Partnership Annual Conference 2021

The Zemo Partnership Annual Conference 2021 will be held online on Tuesday 20 July 2021 from 11am-4pm and will discuss where the UK government transport decarbonisation plan is taking us. The Conference is the first since the transition from the LowCVP.

Following last year’s successful event, the Zemo Partnership will use the latest in digital conferencing technology to maximise the opportunities for interactivity, information sharing and networking. 

This year, the Zemo Partnership’s annual conference is held in association with Net Zero Week taking place between 17-23 July. Net Zero Week is a government and industry-backed national awareness week; a focal point for generating awareness and much needed momentum for businesses and consumers.

Conference Theme

Following the UK Government’s 2030/5 petrol/diesel phase-out announcement, the ratcheting up of 2035 greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets and the publication of the long-awaited transport decarbonisation plan, the conference will examine whether the plan includes actions that will enable us to deliver the medium and long-term targets and what this transition will mean for road users and other stakeholders. Contributors will be invited to offer ideas on the challenges to the successful delivery of the plan and actionable proposals for removing barriers to their achievement.

Conference key questions:

• Can the transport decarbonisation plan set the UK on a trajectory to zero transport emissions?

• What are the key barriers to achievement of the plan’s provisions and how can these be removed?  

• What do the transport changes to come mean for individuals and groups of road users?

• What are the likely solutions to the challenges (hear from some leading proponents)?

• What will Zemo Partnership be doing to accelerate progress?
