Showcases the vitality and strength of the sustainable transport community
Brings together different sustainable transport stakeholders to have their voice heard in the UNFCCC process
Speaks with one voice on the important contribution that sustainable mobility can make to the mitigation of, and adaptation to climate change
Having successfully worked to strengthen the voice of the sustainable transport community in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) processes and support effective action on transport and climate change from 2015 to 2020, the Paris Process on Mobility and Climate sunset in December 2020 following a mutual agreement between two founding entities: SLOCAT Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport and Movin’On by Michelin.
The Paris Process on Mobility and Climate (PPMC) was established as an open and inclusive platform that actively invites all organisations and initiatives that support effective action on transport and climate change to join in the process. The PPMC was created in early 2015 to strengthen the voice of the sustainable transport community in the UNFCCC process, especially with a view to the 21st Conference of Parties (COP21) in December 2015 in Paris and the Paris Agreement. During COP21 the PPMC was able to showcase the vitality and strength of the sustainable transport community in terms of action on transport and climate Change. By bringing together different actors and stakeholders in the sustainable transport community, PPMC made it possible for the transport sector to have its voice heard and speak with one voice on the important contribution that sustainable mobility can make to the mitigation of, and adaptation to climate change.
Building on its first success during COP21 and the adoption of the Paris Agreement, PPMC decided to widen its initial scope of action, moving from ambition advocacy to implementation advocacy, by crafting the Global Macro Roadmap (GMR) as an actionable vision for decarbonised, resilient mobility by 2050+. This approach was highlighted at COP22 as a UNFCCC-endorsed “discussion document” in the context of the Global Climate Action Agenda (later the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action), with the active support of the two High-Level Climate Champions.
For COP 25, a set of key messages have been developed on behalf of the PPMC. These messages highlight some of the existing solutions and outstanding challenges for sustainable, low carbon mobility and transport.

Global Macro Roadmap
The PPMC proposes the development of a Global Macro-Roadmap through a phased action process, covering a 2020-2050+ timeline and thereby covering both short as well as mid- to long-term actions. This Roadmap aims to give a realistic (technically feasible) vision, with an operational focus for each segment of the Transport sector (people and freight; road, railway, aviation, waterborne; urban and rural). It is driven by new sustainable and inclusive growth opportunities called for by the SDGs.
India Roadmap on Low Carbon and Sustainable Mobility
The India roadmap lays out a long term direction for policy interventions towards a low carbon and sustainable mobility ecosystem for India and will provide the vision for an integrated approach to decarbonisation of the transport sector in the short term (2022), medium term (2030) and long term (2050). The process of building the India roadmap involves a mapping of the landscape of sustainable mobility policy framework in the country, bottom-up industry-led consultation and inputs, and interface with government and other stakeholders in the mobility space in India.

Engagement in COP25
The Chile Climate Change Conference featured the 25th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP25) was held from 2 to 13 December 2019 in Madrid, Spain. SLOCAT and Movin’On, under the PPMC, actively engaged the global transport community at COP25 and is working closely with the Chilean Presidency to advance sustainable, low carbon transport.
