Focus of work

This grant will support IPPR and Element Energy to work together to shift the transport system in a fairer, greener and healthier direction.

Over two crucial years in the UK’s political cycle, IPPR’s work will present the case and roadmap for rapid and deep reductions in transport emissions as part of the move to a fairer transport system, show how this action can be shared across society and tell the story of its impact on people’s lives.


IPPR’s goal is to accelerate the transition to a fairer, greener and healthier transport system by mainstreaming the ideas and policies that will deliver faster climate action and a nature recovery in a way that allows everyone to thrive.

They will achieve this by:

  • Defining a credible road map for what needs to be done in the 2020s to make significant progress in transport decarbonisation by 2030
  • Providing a platform for new voices to share their stories of what the shift to a fairer transport system would mean for them
  • Engaging with politicians in the current electoral cycle
  • Shaping the work of others in assessing the most desirable approach to transport decarbonisation
  • Providing insights that can support local, regional and devolved national governments to deliver ambitious transport decarbonisation policies
  • Contributing to a longer-term shift in the mainstream public debate and social norms associated with transport demand.
