Prior to 2017, the LowCVP’s Commercial Vehicle Interest Group shadowed and supported work being carried out under the auspices of the DfT’s Low Emissions HGV Task Force. This included the development and launch of an accreditation scheme for retrofit carbon reduction technology for HGVs and testing of various gas-powered vehicles in 2016.
To build upon this work and more actively support the DfT’s growing freight carbon reduction agenda, as well as contribute effectively to other programmes such as Transport for London’s LoCITY initiative and the work of the Defra/DfT Joint Air Quality Unit, LowCVP re-convened its Commercial Vehicle Working Group in 2017. The CVWG now provides the primary mechanism for LowCVP members interested in freight decarbonisation and emissions reduction to engage in and plan our work programme, influence policy-making and collaborate with like-minded organisations and individuals. Links to the various projects CVWG is currently involved in are below. CVWG meets up to four times a year in various locations all over the UK and its interests cover all forms of commercial vehicle not used for passenger transport, including vans, HGVs, refuse vehicles, refrigerated vehicles and others.
