As with the energy and auto-sectors, UK freight transport is currently undergoing a comprehensive transition away from fossil fuels. This will fundamentally reconfigure the way that rail, road, sea and air freight operates, and therefore the UK trading system as a whole.

Meanwhile, the role of ports in supporting a cleaner energy mix in the UK is currently coming into sharper focus. Join us to hear from Alan Tinline, Head of Environment at Associated British Ports, as he discusses:

  • The scale of investment and technological and policy developments needed to make this systems shift occur
  • What to expect from the route to lower-carbon transport and ultimately net-zero in the freight sector
  • How British ports will play a significant role in supporting renewable energy in the UK
  • The implications that the decarbonisation of freight poses to existing business models, and how cross-sector collaboration will be key to mitigating risk
  • Alan Tinline

    Associated British Ports

    As Head of Environment at Associated British Ports (ABP) Alan is a Chartered Environmentalist, experienced in environmental and sustainability issues including ESG reporting, air quality, GHG accounting, carbon reduction, waste management, biodiversity. ABP is the UK’s leading and best-connected port owner and operator. Our network of 21 ports around Britain offer unparalleled marine, road and rail access to domestic and international markets. ABP also owns the UK’s busiest rail freight terminal at Hams Hall located in the heart of the country. Associated British Ports (ABP) is committed to reducing the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions arising from port activity. ABP’s absolute carbon footprint has decreased more than 27% since 2014, with some ports achieving reduction rates over 50%. Across the group, ABP continues to deliver major investment in solar and wind generation to maximise the use of renewables for powering our business. Last year, ABP generated over 22GWh of renewable electricity, enough to support many of our own and our customers’ operations, in some cases delivering a healthy surplus to the National Grid. This reduction in emissions not only minimises the environmental impacts of ABP’s own operations but also those of other port users. By combining reduced emissions with excellent rail, short sea and coastal shipping connections, ABP aims to continue to contribute to resilience and decarbonisation of our supply chains.
