Invitation to join and support the Action towards Climate-friendly Transport Initiative (ACT)

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. The SLoCaT Partnership, in coordination with a number of key partners and members, is leading the transport sub-track of the “Infrastructure, Cities and Local Action” track of the Summit.

Bringing together diverse governments at all levels, private sector organisations, civil society, UN entities and other stakeholders and platforms, the Action towards Climate-friendly Transport (ACT) initiative has been conceptualised and curated over the past months by these actors 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.

The ACT is made up of four 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 and electric 2-3 wheelers. 
  • Component 3: Creating a mass-market for zero-emission freight vehicles.
  • Component 4: Setting-up global dialogue arenas with the private sector.  
Join the Action towards Climate-friendly Transport!

The coalition working on ACT is warmly inviting all partners in the sustainable low carbon transport constituency to join and support the initiative towards the UNSG Climate Action Summit. ACT provides a critical opportunity to promote and accelerate 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.
