ABP Southampton publishes Air Quality Strategy with package of commitments
ABP Southampton launches its new Air Quality Strategy which sets out a package of proposals to accelerate improvements in air quality around the UK's number one export, automotive and cruise port, the company said in its press release.
The Strategy aims to accelerate progress to deliver clean air in the city working with Southampton City Council and the Government. The proposals set out plans to continue the trend of reducing emissions in the city without the need for a city-wide charging regime.
ABP Southampton Director Alastair Welch said: “We hope that in implementing our proposed package of measures the need for the council to introduce blanket charging for HGVs across the city will be removed.
The port is working with cruise line partners, shipping lines, port users and tenants and energy suppliers to deliver cleaner air for the city of Southampton.
