Emission Reduction Roadmap

This report sets out the conclusions of an emissions reduction roadmap exercise, completed to identify the technologies available and applicable to meet the environmental goals set out in the PLA’s Air Quality Strategy for the tidal Thames. The roadmap for Thames inland vessels will benefit operators, the PLA and all other stakeholders, offering direction in reaching current and potential future emission targets.

As such both the guidance for operators and that for developers have been produced in the first year of the strategy.
