Accelerating Transport to Zero Emissions
Zemo Partnership sometimes runs Joint Working Group projects where the content crosses over Working Group areas or where the content does not fit comfortably within one of the other Groups. These projects are overseen by the Members Council.
The environmental impacts of road transport extend well beyond the emissions of road vehicles at the tailpipe. With the increased electrification of road transport and the introduction of new renewable fuels, it’s vital to understand the lifecycle impacts involved in the production of energy/fuels for transport and in their manufacturing and disposal processes.
With the Clean Air Zone (CAZ) framework of 2017, Zemo Partnership and EST were commissioned by JAQU (Defra's Joint Air Quality Unit) to develop the Clean Vehicle Retrofit Accreditation Scheme (CVRAS) across the widest range of vehicles possible. The programme continues with further certification programme and testing funds, together with development of in-service monitoring and enforcement regimes.
Clean Air Zones (CAZ), which include a range of regulations and incentives to deter the most polluting vehicles from entering areas of poor air quality, are now due to be implemented in 2021 in cities including Leeds, Birmingham and Bath. (There will also be changes to the Low Emission Zone in London.)
The UK market for Powered Light Vehicles (PLVs, also known as L-category vehicles) is complex and fragmented compared to other European markets. With the growth in micromobility and advent of small city cars, the policy arena is increasingly blurred and, potentially, misleading for consumers.
The UK automotive sector has been revitalised during the last decade through the alignment of both private and public investment with the objective of cutting carbon.
The announcement that Government plans to introduce Clean Air Zones in five areas by 2020, provided the backdrop to the event which launched this initiative, jointly brokered by the Zemo Partnership (as LowCVP) and the Clean Air Alliance on March 1st 2016.

There is no better time to join our partnership for change. Join us and help shape the future.
For the past 18 years we've played a pivotal role successfully delivering the UK's low emission transport targets.
But the growing climate emergency means low is no longer enough.
Now, embracing a wider range of stakeholders to achieve a zero emissions future is what matters.
Today, we are strengthening our commitment to make change happen faster and accelerate transport to zero emissions.
Now, the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership is relaunching as Zemo Partnership. #fromLowtoZero
