answer text <p>The Government recognises the need to increase ambition and step up the pace of progress to ensure that all transport sector modes, including freight, play their part in delivering net zero emissions by 2050. We are investing nearly £1.5bn between April 2015 and March 2021 to support the uptake of ultra low emission vehicles, including HGVs. The funding includes the Plug-in Van Grant that provides £20,000 off the price of the first 200 large vans (3.5t+) or trucks, our £22m Future Fuels for Flight and Freight Competition, our ten-year trial of longer semi-trailers, the £11m Low Carbon Truck and Refuelling Infrastructure Trial and the £20m Low Emission Freight Trial. We have agreed an industry-wide voluntary target for reducing HGV greenhouse gas emissions by 15% by 2025, from 2015 levels and are collaborating with and support industry in achieving this goal.</p> more like this
