Goals UITP’s Declaration on Climate Leadership demonstrates the public transport sector’s commitment to tackling climate change and achieving net neutrality to respond to one of the biggest economic opportunities of the 21st century. As part of the UNFCCC’s Global Action Agenda and Marrakesh Partnership, the Declaration’s goal is to double the market share of public transport.

Achieving this would allow us to cater for ever increasing demand for urban transport while decreasing per capita urban transport emissions by 25% (global average) which is over and above what technological solutions can achieve and will move the transport sector in the direction of the Paris Agreement.

The Declaration is also a pledge to achieve net neutrality in the sector and to share lessons learned on how to achieve this. In doing so, more than 110 public transport undertakings committed to deliver over 350 projects to climate action in over 80 global cities. Actions aimed to reduce corporate carbon footprints through improved vehicle and building efficiency or aim at giving a greater role to public transport in urban mobility which helps to decrease regional carbon footprints, through new bus, tram and metro/rail lines. The projects provide an inspiration for action to scale up local and national efforts in support of the NDCs.
