Pioneers of the Green Revolution : on the move

Getting about without petrol is trending. Here are some Blue Patch businesses that specialise in sustainable packaging, last mile logistics and making beautiful bicycles!

With COP26 fast approaching, the demand for businesses to act responsibly and sustainably is on everyone’s radar. Let’s see what our three choices are doing…

Why it matters

Road transport accounts for 10% of global emissions, and its emissions are rising faster than those of any other sector. 

A shift to zero emission vehicles is already underway, creating new jobs, bringing cleaner air to cities, and – increasingly – cutting the costs of car ownership. 

To meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, this transition needs to happen much more quickly.  It must include not only cars, but vans, buses, trucks, and lorries.
