Greener Transport Solutions has received grant funding from the Foundation for Integrated Transport to create a Manifesto for Decarbonising Transport.

It is intended that the project will build a broad coalition of support for some of the politically challenging solutions needed if we are to achieve our carbon reduction targets.
