The Transport Decarbonisation Alliance (TDA) had its second annual meeting last month in Paris.
The TDA was launched in 2018 as a unique collaboration to accelerate the worldwide transformation of the transport sector towards a net-zero emission mobility system before 2050. Members of the TDA are Countries, Cities/Regions and Companies – the “3Cs” as the major drivers in sustainable, low carbon mobility – working together on achieving the goal of the TDA. Currently, the TDA has 23 members from four continents and representing nearly 10% of the global GDP.
The Paris Process on Mobility and Climate (PPMC) has consistently been instrumental from the very outset of the TDA and is highly involved in its development, while having two representatives sitting at the Steering Committee along with 9 other members who represent equally Countries, Cities/Regions and Companies.

PPMC initiated the production of the “TDA Manifesto -Decarbonising Transport by 2050
”- published at COP 24 to serve as an actionable action plan for the 3Cs to join hands and kickstart coordinated, mutually supportive solutions on transport decarbonisation. It is a living document that may evolve in the months and years to come, as membership will expand, and it seeks to act as the backbone of TDA’s further action.
PPMC also promotes the visibility of the TDA on the global stage: for example, it gave space to the TDA during “Transport Day” 2018 at COP24, giving it the opportunity to engage with the global sustainable mobility community and transport companies.
