Road transport accounts for around a quarter of the carbon dioxide emissions in the UK, most of which comes from the use of cars. There are different ways you can reduce your use of fossil fuels (such as petrol or diesel), your impact on the climate and improve air quality in towns and cities.
What can I do?
Walking, cycling and public transport
One of the best ways to reduce CO2 emissions is to leave the car at home, and use an alternate means of transport. Walking, cycling or using public transport may also be a quicker, more convenient, healthy and cost-effective way to complete your journey.
