Responding to today's Autumn Budget, Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye said

On Electric Vehicles:

“Heathrow welcomes the Chancellor’s commitment to increase investment in sustainable modes of transport, targeting the real source of emissions – road vehicles. The Government’s pledge to establish a £400m electric vehicle charging infrastructure fund, investing an extra £100 million in Plug-In-Car Grant, and £40 million in charging R&D, will make it easier for more of our partners and colleagues to adopt greener transport options. Heathrow remains on track to reduce emissions from airport related traffic by at least 40% by 2020 and 60% by 2025 – a key ambition in the airport’s sustainability strategy, Heathrow 2.0. We look forward to seeing the government deliver this much needed boost.”
