Zemo Partnership Summit 2024

With a new UK Government in place and increased ambition for transport decarbonisation, the Zemo Partnership Summit is a must-attend event for organisations with a stake in road transport and those who want to play a part in shaping our transport future.

With over a million electric vehicles now on the UK’s roads, transport decarbonisation is already well under way. It’s time to focus on delivery so that we can make the most of this essential transition.

Sign up for the Zemo Partnership Summit to find out more about how the Partnership and our members will work with the new Council for Net Zero Transport to develop a delivery roadmap for net zero transport to inform and guide the policies of the new Westminster Government.

Breaking news: Professor Sir Jim Skea (Chair of the IPCC and launch director of Zemo Partnership) will deliver a keynote address at the Conference.
