MCIA ON TEAM FOR ZERO EMISSIONS MOVE

The Motorcycle Industry Association has hailed the government’s inclusion of zero-emission powered light vehicles (PLVs), including motorcycles and scooters, in its Transport Decarbonisation Plan.

“We are proud to be included and chosen by the government to jointly lead conception and delivery along with Zemo Partnership,” said MCIA chief executive Tony Campbell.

“The government has today laid down a long overdue marker, signalling not the end but the start of our next chapter. We will as an association continue to hold the government to account on its promises during this vitally important next phase of implementation.

“From being a clean and efficient way of getting around to generating industrial opportunities for the UK, we are thrilled to be working with Zemo Partnership in conceiving and delivering an action plan for PLVs fit for the future of our cities’ transport systems. 

“We remain steadfast in our continuing to be a constructive partner to government in ensuring the many benefits our sector brings to society are fully realised. Motorcycles, scooters and other forms of PLV will play a key role and we are extremely happy this has now been recognised.” 

Zemo Partnership chief executive Andy Eastlake added: “We welcome the clear focus in the government’s Transport Decarbonisation Plan on PLVs. We think this provides a large and, as yet, largely unexploited opportunity to change the way we commute in urban and suburban environments, leading to reduced congestion and emissions.”
