Launching of the Global Decarbonising Transport Project

The International Transport Forum (ITF) at the OECD has launched this past May a major global initiative towards carbon-free transport. The Decarbonising Transport project is supported by a wide range of stakeholders, including private sector companies, multilateral development banks, intergovernmental organisations, sector associations, NGOs and research institutions. It is anchored in the ITF’s Corporate Partnership Board, the organisation’s platform for discussions with the private sector.

The Decarbonising Transport project aims to:

  • Provide a common assessment tool based on a comprehensive modelling framework supported by dialogue with key stakeholders. This is essential for “clarity, transparency and understanding” of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions as required in the Paris Agreement for carbon emissions. This approach will enable the ITF and its partners to evaluate the impacts of different sets of measures on carbon reduction.

  • Enable countries and other stakeholders to translate roadmaps into actions that deliver results grounded in quantitative data.

  • Support actions to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals along with the decarbonisation of the transport sector.
