Climate change is arguably the most pressing environmental challenge of our time, and with Logistics and Transport accounting for 28% of all UK carbon emissions, our profession has a huge role to play in reaching net zero by 2050. The challenges are great but so too are the opportunities, and CILT believes that our sector will be a key part of the solution. Over the coming years CILT will work to provide the knowledge, networks and knowhow to inspire and inform ambition: keeping you moving on a Route to a Net Zero future.
