“The Transport Decarbonisation Alliance:
Ambitious visions of transformational change from countries, cities, and companies”
31 May 2018
17:15 – 18:15
Plaza Québec, Balcony 16
Come and join a high-level, in depth discussion of the Transport Decarbonisation Alliance (TDA), a coalition of Countries, Cities/regions and Companies defining front runners’ visions and concrete implementations for the broad expansion of low-carbon transport to accelerate progress toward a net-zero emissions mobility system by 2050.
Following the formal launch of the TDA, at the International Transport Forum Summit, on 24 May 2018, the Movin´On World Summit will provide various opportunities to amplify TDA outreach to the global business community and to expand action on sustainable transport by TDA members.
We invite you to participate in a discussion with TDA members [including the TDA Chairman and Vice Minister for the Environment of Portugal, Alstom, and Michelin] to translate transport ambitions and commitments into (both technology and economically) feasible and rapid actions, and to keep transport emissions on track with the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
