More than 281,000 daily journeys are freight (HGV and vans) – that’s 30% of all central London traffic and 10% of all Greater London traffic. With transport accounting for 63% of NO2 (Nitrogen Dioxide) and 52% of PM10 (Particulate Matter) emissions, the two principle pollutants of concern in London, it is vital that we take action to reduce emissions.
LoCITY has been established to help mitigate these effects and reduce commercial vehicle emissions. It offers a unique opportunity for vehicle manufacturers, fuel infrastructure providers, procurers and commercial fleet operators to collaborate to ensure we have the right technology, the right vehicles and the right fuels in the right places.
LoCITY will showcase match-funded demonstration projects and will work with other organisations to ensure the commercial fleet sector gets its fair share of funding.
