Rio+20 Voluntary Commitments on Sustainable Transport
At the the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the SLoCaT Partnership facilited the submission of 16 Voluntary Commitments on Sustainable Transport. The Future We Want, the outcome document of Rio+20 emphasises the importance of these Voluntary Commitments in bringing about transformative change: “We welcome the commitments voluntarily entered into at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development and throughout 2012 by all stakeholders and their networks to implement concrete policies, plans, programmes, projects and actions to promote sustainable development and poverty eradication

At the Rio+20 Conference, SLoCaT together with its members made 16 Voluntary Commitments to contribute to the promotion and implementation of sustainable transport and sustainable development.
On June 20 2013, members of the SLoCaT Partnership made six additional Voluntary Commitments for the coming decade. These additional commitments will help to track the sustainability of the transport sector and also contribute towards reporting on the implementation and impact of the existing Voluntary Commitments on Sustainable Transport.
