On 8 December 2015, at the Netherlands Pavilion at the UNFCCC COP21 meeting, high level representatives from government, the private sector, civil society and international organizations met to discuss the role that zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) play in mitigating climate change.
“What’s important now is to make these actions [INDC transport actions] visible and connect them to the ambitions of the transport-organisations. We are aiming to achieve critical mass, so that we can accelerate progress towards results. With this publication we hope to boost that acceleration.”
Paris, 3 December 2015 – Recognizing that transportation has the highest growth of CO2 emissions of any industrial sector, transport representatives present 10 initiatives at COP21 in Paris today that will reduce emissions and build more sustainable transport systems.With energy-related CO2 emissions set to jump from one quarter of total energy-related emissions today to one-third by 2050, many are looking at significant changes they can make in transport to help join
On the framework of the 4th Latin-American Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS LAC) Annual Workshop, the Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) and Michelin Challenge Bibendum, as part of the Paris Process on Mobility and Climate (PPCM), and the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) organized a Regional dialogue on sustainable transport actions to mitigate climate change, jointly with the LEDS LAC Transport Group and
Intended Nationally-Determined Contributions (INDCs) represent a unique opportunity to increase bold mitigation and adaptation measures in transport and other sectors, as for the first time, countries are communicating their intended actions to reduce emissions and increase resilience on sectoral scales in the context of the UNFCCC system.
