Renewable Transport
Fuel Association

The RTFA is a trade body driving representing the interests of the UK’s renewable and low carbon fuel producers and promoting the uptake of better road, aviation and maritime fuels

It will take decades to transition to electrification and hydrogen across all transport sectors

Carbon emissions from transport must be reduced as a matter of urgency

These fuels are delivering valuable carbon savings today, and the companies that produce them will be the innovators and investors of the future, making fuels for those sectors of transport that cannot ultimately be electrified, such as heavy freight, aviation and marine.

We call upon Government to have greater ambition in the fight to reduce carbon emissions from transport. Time is short.
