Logistics UK and the environment

The logistics industry recognises the impact it can have on the environment and wishes to play a positive role in helping address this. Through best practice, innovation and investment into new technologies, action is being taken across the sector. Transport decarbonisation is a key focus for the industry, and it is fully committed to achieving Net Zero by 2050. As the UK looks towards COP26 in November 2021, Logistics UK will continue its engagement with government and stakeholders on both the opportunities and barriers to achieving a more sustainable logistics industry.
