Transport is one of the most significant greenhouse gas contributors, accounting for 23 percent of global energy-related emissions, and a vital source of poor air quality in cities. Out of these 23 percent, emissions from urban freight contribute to almost 40 percent, making planning for sustainable mobility critical not just for the environment but also for urban space and livability. Hence in 2019, ICLEI’s Sustainable Mobility Team have expanded our work to include ecologistics for sustainable urban freight. EcoLogistics promotes circularity, health, safety, people-centered development, and low emissions in the transportation of goods.
This is an informal exchange among the EcoLogistics Cities and cities interested in sustainable logistics. Interested global cities will have the opportunity to learn more about the EcoLogistics initiative and the EcoLogistics Community, including goals, benefits, and roles. City representatives will share their current core works and developments on sustainable logistics in their cities while exploring future points of interest for collaboration.
