Having successfully worked to strengthen the voice of the sustainable transport community in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) processes and support effective action on transport and climate change from 2015 to 2020, the Paris Process on Mobility and Climate sunset in December 2020 following a mutual agreement between two founding entities: SLOCAT Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport and Movin’On by Michelin.
The Paris Process on Mobility and Climate (PPMC) was established as an open and inclusive platform that actively invites all organisations and initiatives that support effective action on transport and climate change to join in the process. The PPMC was created in early 2015 to strengthen the voice of the sustainable transport community in the UNFCCC process, especially with a view to the 21st Conference of Parties (COP21) in December 2015 in Paris and the Paris Agreement. During COP21 the PPMC was able to showcase the vitality and strength of the sustainable transport community in terms of action on transport and climate Change. By bringing together different actors and stakeholders in the sustainable transport community, PPMC made it possible for the transport sector to have its voice heard and speak with one voice on the important contribution that sustainable mobility can make to the mitigation of, and adaptation to climate change.
Building on its first success during COP21 and the adoption of the Paris Agreement, PPMC decided to widen its initial scope of action, moving from ambition advocacy to implementation advocacy, by crafting the Global Macro Roadmap (GMR) as an actionable vision for decarbonised, resilient mobility by 2050+. This approach was highlighted at COP22 as a UNFCCC-endorsed “discussion document” in the context of the Global Climate Action Agenda (later the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action), with the active support of the two High-Level Climate Champions.
