TSA comments on Transport Decarbonisation Plan

| |Uncategorized

Today, the UK Government has published its plan to decarbonise transport by 2050.

Commenting on the publication of the transport decarbonisation plan, Peter Davidson, Executive Director of the Tank Storage Association, said: “We welcome the publication of the plan and stand ready to work in partnership with Government to ensure that our sector can fully support and lead on the innovations that will be necessary to meet the UK’s net-zero goals. TSA members are a critical part of the supply chain ensuring existing and future products reach their customers. While the bulk liquid storage sector and associated logistics are already active in a number of areas that will drive success going forward, ultimately, investment and collaboration with Government and all partners will be pivotal as the UK transitions to a decarbonised economy.”
