The group will also commence activity on the specific actions needed to stimulate low carbon urban freight solutions. 

  • Aimed at cities and local authorities, the LowCVP is hosting a free workshop in partnership with Sheffield City Council to help the delivery of best practice measures for increasing the take up of low emission vehicles in cities.
