Description The IRU "30 by 30" Resolution is a voluntary commitment of the road transport industry to reduce CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030 through means such as investments in innovative engine and vehicle technology, driver training and innovative logistic concepts.
Objectives To reduce CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030, calculated as transport performance in tonne km and person km and related to the base year 2007 - through means such as:

Investments in innovative engine and latest vehicle technology, which can contribute to a reduction in fuel consumption and consequently CO2 emissions of more than 10%.

Driver training, as provided by the IRU Academy and others, which can reduce fuel consumption and consequently CO2 emissions by up to 10%.

Innovative logistic concepts, such as ITS and optimised weights and dimensions of heavy commercial vehicles, which can equally reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of more than 10%.

Activities The IRU is involved in activities which include, but are not limited to: Partnership among all its active and associate members and with related organisations and industries to define, develop and promote policies of common interest; Monitoring all activities, legislation, policies and events that impact the road transport industry, responding to and cooperating with all actors involved; Strategic reflection on global challenges of energy, competition and social responsibility, drawing on the strengths and expertise of its members channeled through the IRU Commissions and Working Parties; Dialogue with intergovernmental bodies, international organisations and all other stakeholders concerned by the road transport industry, including the public at large; Cooperation with policy makers, legislators and opinion-makers, in order to contribute to informed and effective legislation, striking the right balance between the needs and interests of all; Public-private partnerships with relevant authorities to implement legal instruments such as the TIR Convention under UN mandate or concrete transnational projects such as the reopening of the Silk Road; Communication of the role and importance of the road transport industry, of its position on various issues and of reliable data and information; Provision of practical services and information, to road transport operators, such as the latest fuel prices, waiting times at borders, secure parking areas, professional training, legislative developments, legal assistance, etc; Training to promote professional competence in the sector, improve the quality of services it offers and ensure compliance of road transport training standards with international legislation, through the IRU Academy.
