The Department for Transport was fully involved with all stages of the preparation of "Climate Change: The UK Programme 2006". As part of this, the Department was an active member of the Climate Change Project Board, the Sustainable Energy Policy Network and the Interdepartmental Analysts Group.

As a result of the transport measures in this and the previous Climate Change Programme, carbon emissions will be reduced by 6.8 million tonnes, 13 per cent. lower than they would have been had we not acted at all.
