With two pivotal agreements set for implementation, the post-2015 sustainable development agenda and the climate change agreement at the UNFCCC COP21, there is vast importance to firstly inform industry, governments and all stakeholders of the role they must play and secondly to ensure they are ready to play it.
FIATA has therefore created a high powered Working Group on Sustainable Logistics (WGSL) whose members focus in particular on the topic of sustainable transport. The Working Group members, consisting of a unique body of decision makers from a wide range of countries within the Private Sector, ready to contribute to the changing landscape of our industry process and provide their support.
Within the climate change pillar of the SDG agenda and the UNFCCC COP21 agreement, freight transport has come to light being given a large role to play in ensuring we move away from the projected 4-6 degrees world temperature level down to 2 degrees as targeted. Therefore the working groups has established good relations with UN bodies such as UNFCCC, UNEP, ITF and other public and private stakeholders working towards climate change and emission policy reforms.
