Membership Principles

  • Climate change is an urgent problem requiring greenhouse gas emissions to be substantially reduced locally and globally within a timescale that limits the risk of serious impacts.
  • Road transport is an important source of greenhouse gas emissions and must make a significant contribution to reducing its emissions through a combination of improved vehicle technology, use of alternative fuels and responsible vehicle use.
  • Government, industry and other stakeholders share responsibility for accelerating the supply of, and demand for, low carbon vehicles and fuels.
  • The UK should seek to provide leadership to the international community by demonstrating how to achieve a sustainable pathway to a low carbon future and thereby stimulate opportunities for UK-based businesses.
  • Working through a multi-stakeholder partnership is an effective means of accelerating the passage to a low carbon future.

Membership Commitments:

  • Through their activities encourage the supply of, or demand for, lower carbon automotive technologies, vehicles or fuels.
  • Collaborate constructively with other LowCVP members to develop the market for low carbon vehicles or fuels.
  • Support relevant Partnership activities by providing funding, staff, resources or other appropriate assistance commensurate with the size of their organisation.
  • Inspire, innovate and lead the development of the market for low carbon automotive solutions by sharing learning and experience when appropriate.
  • Promote their participation in LowCVP and actively support its mission and aims through appropriate channels.
