Trade Association Forum – Chief Executives’ Lunch

RHA Chief Executive, Geoff Dunning recently attended a private lunch for some 12 people with the Minister of State, Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC), Charles Hendry.

DECC lead on this area, but RHA also works closely with DfT. Interestingly, the DECC’s wide ranging carbon study makes quite a lot of reference to transport in general and freight in particular, mention is made of “eco-driving”, but there is no reference to modal shift, with long distance freight being referred to as a potentially significant user of bio-fuels as a way of reducing CO2 emissions.
