World summit on zero-emission vehicles Birmingham is set to hold the world’s first summit focused on zero-emission vehicles, as governments come together to tackle global air quality.

This event will bring policy makers and industry experts together, following a pledge from Prime Minister Theresa May at the One Planet event in Paris last December.

The announcement is part of the Government’s ‘mission’ to put the UK at the forefront of zero-emission vehicle development, along with its pledge to ban conventional internal-combustion engines by 2040.

The summit is scheduled for 11 September, the day before the Low-Carbon Vehicle Show.

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said: “The Government is committed to meeting our climate-change targets and cleaning up our air; to help achieve that, we are investing £1.5 billion in ultra-low-emission vehicles by 2021.

“This event shows Britain leading the way in developing the new technology that will create new jobs and help improve the air we breathe; and with a proud history in pioneering vehicle manufacturing, Birmingham is exactly the right location to showcase the innovations of the future.”

Business Secretary Greg Clark said: “The Midlands has a rich automotive heritage, and the growth of high-tech manufacturing across the region continues to drive investment in the region, produce highly skilled jobs and boost economic growth — making it an ideal place to lead the world in zero-emission vehicles.

“Our modern industrial strategy sets out plans for the transition to ultra-low and zero-emission vehicle technology. This summit, bringing together global leaders in the ‘green vehicle’ revolution, is an important step on the road to making that ambition a reality.”
