My Speaker Sessions

Tuesday 29 November 2022


Helping transport planners & users act positively now for a Net Zero future

11:00 - 11:25

Discover opportunities to reduce the carbon emissions from the transport system to support Net Zero goals and support Transport Scotland's world-leading commitment to reduce car kilometres by 20% by 2030.

The session will identify potential investment opportunities in infrastructure to encourage sustainable travel behaviours, improving the lives of our diverse communities and minimising carbon impact. We will use examples of applying WSP’s Carbon Zero Appraisal Framework on our transport projects ranging from small safety schemes, that include active travel improvements, to regional strategies.
