The ICLEI EcoLogistics Community is the first city network globally committed to a sustainable urban freight future. The Community leads sustainable urban freight development in participating cities and drive global actions in the international stage through collaborative exchange and action plans and stakeholder engagements.
Taoyuan City is the Chair and Host of the Community from 2020 to 2022. It aims to use the integration of technology, policies and planning as a vehicle for environmental, social, and economic sustainability in the urban freight sector. Taoyuan City is the national leading logistics hub, and its comprehensive logistics industry brings enormous prosperity to the city’s industrial and economic growth. However, this prosperity also comes with various environmental downsides, such as air pollution, noise pollution, congestion, waste pollution, road degradation, and GHG emissions. Therefore, the city sees sustainable urban freight as an essential opportunity and leverages it to be a first-mover on the island of Taiwan.
