Diesel ban and restrictions update

The climate is changing. Governments are increasing restrictions on and prohibiting older high-polluting vehicles from entering a city’s main urban areas and paving the way for low emission alternatives, like the Dearman Hubbard zero emission transport refrigeration unit.

How society delivers clean and sustainable cold is a major issue, given the global challenges of food scarcity, changing demographics and growing energy demand.

Below is a list of countries and cities that recognise their role in the coming avalanche of change and exploring alternatives to burning fossil fuels.
