Zemo Partnership appoints new leader04 January 2024

Zemo Partnership Claire Haigh

Claire Haigh is to lead the Zemo Partnership following the departure of Andy Eastlake, who has stepped down after more than a decade of leadership.

The Zemo Partnership, formerly Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership/LowCVP, works with the government and a range of stakeholders to deliver key policies and initiatives to accelerate the decarbonisation of UK road transport.

Haigh (pictured) was previously CEO of Greener Journeys, an evidence-based campaign organisation funded by the major public transport companies which was established to highlight the environmental and associated benefits of bus travel. She also currently chairs the Delivery and Impacts Independent Review Panel for the Joint Air Quality Unit (Defra/ Department for Transport).

Haigh has worked with Zemo/LowCVP for many years. As the partnership’s vice chair, in early 2023, she carried out a survey of the views of (approaching 100) senior stakeholders on the past role and future opportunities for Zemo, providing input to a strategic review commissioned for the partnership’s 20th anniversary year. The key conclusion of the review was that the priority now for net zero is the delivery of targets. This will be the partnership’s primary focus under Haigh's leadership. A Zero Emission Mobility Taskforce has been established to support this purpose.

During his tenure, Eastlake has overseen the work of the Zemo-convened electric vehicle energy taskforce which brought together stakeholders from the energy and transport sectors to maximise the potential opportunities arising from transport’s decarbonisation transition. Recommendations from the taskforce were enshrined in legislation through the Public Charge Point Regulations 2023.
