Chris Grayling

Secretary of State for Transport

The Department for Transport, headed by Chris Grayling, has put out some major moves to decarbonise road transport this year, such as the Road to Zero strategy and the passing of the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018 into law.

The government also held its first ever Zero Emission Vehicle Summit in Birmingham where £106m funding was announced for new battery and hydrogen technology.

With transport such a big cause of carbon emissions and local air pollution, Grayling has a major role to play in setting policies that will affect how the transport, automotive and fleet sectors work in the future.
