Join ACT to show that we need more transport action!
The UNSG Climate Action Summit will be held on 23 September at United Nations Headquarters in New York. The Summit is a key milestone in the international community’s work towards sincere, renewed, and ambitious climate action.
Join our coalition to work on ACT – together for sustainable low carbon transport! ACT promotes and accelerates transport action in the fight against climate change. It is now up to us collectively to signal robust support for the transformative potential of climate friendly transport and therefore maximise the opportunity brought about by this upcoming UN SG Summit to trigger further action and investment.
Governments at all levels, private sector organisations, civil society, UN entities and other stakeholders and platforms, come together within the Action towards Climate-friendly Transport (ACT) initiative to draw clear pathways in the complementary fields of policy framework setting, integrated transport and urban planning, non-motorised and public transport infrastructure provision and zero emission fleet replacement.
ACT has 4 components:
- Component 1: Connecting innovative approaches with integrated long-term planning and policy-making processes.
- Component 2: Enabling architecture for a mass rollout of electric buses.
- Component 3: Creating a mass-market for zero-emission freight vehicles.
- Component 4: Setting-up global dialogue arenas with the private sector.
ACT promotes and accelerates transport action in the fight against climate change. Let us together now ACT and draw clear pathways for sustainable transport!
