Safety and Sustainability: developing a seamless approach
Improving safety and increasing sustainability are clear priorities for transport policy. We want a transport system that is safe for its users, however they choose to travel. In addition, in response to both the Stern and Eddington reviews, the government places a high priority on reducing the contribution of transport to climate change.
The aim of this conference is to explore the opportunities to make safety and sustainability complementary approaches. How can we create environments that will encourage people to walk and cycle? Can business travel become both safe and sustainable? Can we identify the policy trade-offs that we may need to make and decide which should take priority?
