National Highways reports on Net Zero progress

National Highways has issued a report into the progress it says it has delivered on the journey to net zero highways.

In its two-year report it says its achievements recorded in the last year include becoming the first roads organisation in the world to receive PAS2080 verification in December 2022, publishing a net zero roadmap for concrete, steel and asphalt, increasing low emission vehicle fleet to 67%, implementing low energy LED lighting across 28% of its network, and launching the Low Carbon opportunities register.

Additionally, in 2022/2023, it says it achieved a reduction across all three emission sectors against the revised 2019/20 baseline, with a corporate carbon emissions reduction of 61%, construction and maintenance reduction of 9% and a road user carbon emissions reduction of 6%.

It says the net zero plan will also “continue to evolve” as additional information and data becomes available.
