Rail industry welcomes Prime Minister’s Ten Point Decarbonisation Plan and urges role for rail

Railway Industry Association

1 min read

The Railway Industry Association (RIA), the voice of the UK rail supply community, has welcomed the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Decarbonisation Plan and urged a greater role for rail.

Darren Caplan, Chief Executive of the Railway Industry Association (RIA), said:

“The Prime Minister’s Ten Point Decarbonisation Plan sets out a bold strategy for decarbonising the UK. Rail can play a key role in this vision – it is already a low carbon form of mass transit, and can reduce its emissions even further with a rolling programme of electrification and fleet orders of low carbon rolling stock including effective use of hydrogen and battery.

“We look forward to working with the Government as it publishes its Transport Decarbonisation Plan early next year, and would urge that rail plays a key role in supporting the UK’s journey to net zero.”
