COVID-19: Friend or foe for decarbonising transport?Book Now
Start Date:25/02/2021 12:30

Event Code:PTRC0717
Description:

About this Event

The USA is rejoining the 2016 Paris Agreement, following President Joe Biden’s inauguration. The UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow is less than 10 months away. At the end of last year, the UK Government set out a ten-point plan for a green industrial revolution and confirmed bringing forward a ban on new diesel and petrol cars from 2040 to 2030. It’s Transport Decarbonisation Plan is also expected to be published soon. Meanwhile we are still gripped by a pandemic.

Global protests inspired by teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg swelled during 2019 with calls for action in response to the climate emergency. In a period from September 2019, Australia experienced the worst bush fires in history – a stark symptom of a changing climate in many people’s eyes. Then the pandemic took hold. The world’s attention was drawn to a more immediate crisis and one that is yet to pass. COVID-19 has sent shockwaves through societies with loss of life, loss of confidence and loss of the freedoms. It has left us more uncertain than ever about what the future has in store.

Restrictions on travel and social distancing have brought parts of the transport sector to their knees, with demand decimated. Meanwhile, a prolonged behaviour change experiment has been in play as many people turn to digital connectivity and their local neighbourhoods in order to live their lives.

In the face of such circumstances, the UK remains committed to decarbonising transport in less than 30 years. This is a hugely ambitious undertaking that will involve multiple transitions in a sector that has a poor track record for reducing its total CO2 emissions, epitomised by an upwards not downwards emissions pressure created by the popularity of SUVs.

Will the pandemic prove to be the nail in the coffin of hopes to clean up transport at the scale and pace that is needed? Will the economic aftermath of COVID-19 drive a craving for a return to the familiarity of pre-pandemic activity and transport behaviours? Will those who fear what they see as the ‘climate change ideology’ muster an appetite for dampening the sense of urgency and responsibility to decarbonise?

Or could COVID-19 be a catalyst for our salvation? Might humanity’s exposure to its own vulnerability and to its ability to rapidly adapt behaviours during the pandemic have changed its outlook, with a greater willingness to embrace decarbonisation? Could the state of flux be a true opening for bold new steps for a green recovery as governments strive for economic stability and their place in the new world order?

This 90-minute panel debate is the eighth in a series of PTRC Fireside Chats prompted by COVID-19 that consider implications for transport. The event is intended to provide a thought-provoking examination of the outlook for decarbonisation, in light of COVID-19.

The conversation will be framed with the following questions:

  • Where might we now be in terms of transport decarbonisation prospects had the pandemic not materialised?
  • What grounds for optimism or pessimism regarding decarbonising transport are there as a result of COVID-19?
  • Has COVID-19 shifted the relative expectations of technology fix and behaviour change as contributors to decarbonising transport?
  • What else might the pandemic and its aftermath have in store that could significantly influence decarbonisation?
  • How much could or should COVID-19 shape COP26 and will it make a difference to the resolve for action?

Speaker: Peter Karan, FCILT

In the October (2019) edition of Focus Peter published an article “Power by the Hour”. Flight delays and cancellations from unplanned maintenance cost airlines Billions every year.

Despite more durable engines and innovations in maintenance techniques recent research has shown that maintenance spending continues to increase and now exceeds the cost of fuel or crew. Peter will explain the concept and how Digital Twins, The Internet of Things, Augmented Reality, Cloud Computing and AI are being used to
improve the manufactures service to the airlines.

Peter will then facilitate a discussion on the Coronavirus issue.

The PRIDE Professional Network Forum are exited to welcome Pilot James Bushe. James is Europe's first newly qualified airline pilot living with HIV.  After a successful anonymous campaign to change the regulations that had barred him and others from entering the profession, James now speaks openly about his journey to help tackle the stigma that still exists toward those that live with the condition. Before his aviation career began, James graduated in Law from Durham University and held a number of senior management roles in the hospitality industry.

The Accessibility and Inclusion Forum are proud to welcome Caroline Eglinton who is an access and inclusion manager within the Diversity and Inclusion team at Network Rail.  She leads the business-wide Disability Matters programme. This focuses on being an inclusive employer for those with long-term conditions and is part of the overarching diversity and inclusion strategy 'Everyone Matters'. It also includes strategy and policy for disabled passengers using the rail network.

Caroline has worked at Network Rail for 15 years.  She came to work on disability inclusion following 13 years in programme and business change management, skills which have translated well into delivering cultural change in equality, diversity and inclusion. A passionate disability advocate, Caroline has the genetic condition Cystic Fibrosis.  She was diagnosed with ADHD at age 39.  Caroline previously chaired Network Rail’s Disabled Employee network. Inclusion in the workplace through inclusive employment practices is a personal and professional passion for Caroline, with a special interest in fluctuating conditions, mental health and neurodiversity.

Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker:

Harald Hamley - Teaching Fellow at University of Portsmouth, FCILT, ex Supply Chain Director & former CILT Regional Officer CSR.

Harald will talk about the hard-won lessons from his 30 years as a Logistician. He’ll draw on real examples, such as the challenge of improving the export service to Japan and conducting a network study to determine the optimum European warehouse network. This talk will be of most interest to those in the earlier stages of their career. Logistics isn’t rocket science; Harald believes one can go far by gathering the right data, using common sense and keeping it simple.


Harald has held senior management positions in global corporations and led multicultural teams. As European Supply Chain Manager he set up the processes for a billion Euro joint venture and introduced a new supply chain culture. Earlier in his career he designed logistics systems, managed production, planning teams and customer services. Harald has also implemented ERP/SAP in ten European countries, gaining a thorough understanding of sales, service, purchasing and finance. 

Harald is now trying to pass on his hard won SCM and Operations experience to students at Portsmouth Business School. In his spare time, he chairs the CILT Awards Scheme.

The Thames Valley Group are always keen to enjoy a relaxed informal environment in their events but unfortunately cannot move to the pub after the presentation as normal. Participants are therefore encouraged to bring the beverage of their choice to the webinar.

The Abbey Wood to Ebbsfleet Connectivity Study – How Should we Invest in Transport to Deliver the Government’s Vision for the Thames Estuary?Book Now

Description:

When: 03 March 2021, 17:00 - 18:30
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Martin Tedder, Programme Director – Abbey Wood-Ebbsfleet Connectivity project

In 2018 the Thames Estuary Growth Commission, led by Sir John Armitt, identified that the Estuary could deliver a million new homes and 1.3 million new jobs by 2050, making this one of the largest opportunities for growth anywhere in the UK. The area between Abbey Wood, where the current Crossrail line is due to terminate, and Ebbsfleet, as an international gateway, has both the ambition and the opportunity to help deliver the Government’s vision for the Estuary. But the Growth Commission was clear that the area’s full potential would only be realised by investing in the quality of its transport networks including, potentially, an extension to Crossrail. In response, Government have funded a landmark study to identify what transport improvements are needed and how these can help deliver new homes and jobs.
