A recent study assessed how green transport plans could reduce energy consumption and vehicle emissions. The report "Business and commuter travel and the application of green transport plans", prepared as part of the UK Government's Energy Efficiency Best Practice Programme (EEBPP), identified a need for more work on this issue, and the Energy Technology Support Unit (ETSU) commissioned a study by Richard Armitage Transport Consultancy. To assess the current position, a workshop was held in July 1998 for a cross-section of the emerging 'green travel' industry. It identified four barriers to adopting green transport plans, and four gaps in the assistance available to employers who want to adopt a green transport plan. Some employers, who wish to adopt a green transport plan, collaborate with others in their area. The ETSU study listed many supportive measures that the EEBPP could adopt to promote awareness, good practice, and technical assistance.
