LowCVP Annual Conference 2020

The 2020 LowCVP Annual Conference will focus on how the UK can seize the opportunity for an investment-led green recovery in road transport as we emerge from the pandemic.

The event will provide a forum for policy ideas and proposals to help inform the Government's 2020 Transport Decarbonisation Plan, due to be published this year. It will use the latest in digital conferencing technology to maximise the opportunities for interactivity, information sharing and networking.

The LowCVP Annual Conference has been a leading event in the environmental transport calendar for over 15 years, regularly attracting government ministers, key civil servants and senior representatives of industry, academia, governmental organisations, NGOs and others.


Ahead of the digital conference, we are conducting a short public survey that will be used to help inform the debate on July 15. If you can spare a couple of minutes to complete the survey using the link below, that would be appreciated.
