Transport Decarbonisation Alliance
Decarbonisation of the transport sector before 2050
The Transport Decarbonisation Alliance (TDA) was launched in 2018 as a unique collaboration of Countries, Cities/Regions and Companies (the 3Cs) to accelerate the worldwide transformation of the transport sector towards a net-zero emission mobility system before 2050.
TDA members acknowledge their responsibility in enabling four strategic imperatives:
- Move away from oil and other fossil fuels to focus on very-low-GHG content energy.
- Lower the energy intensity of our mobility patterns (global economy & individual lifestyles).
- Prepare the physical and IT infrastructure needed to accompany those changes.
- Inform, educate and train populations to embrace the transformation.
Partners and Signatories
As of December 2019, TDA consists of 7 countries, 8 cities and 9 companies. TDA members cover 1.9% of global population and 5.7% of global vehicle fleet; they represent 9.3% of global GDP and contribute to 5.8% of global transport CO2 emissions.
Activities of the initiatives
- Accelerates and scales up ambition for the transport sector by outlining a shared vision for front-runners in transport decarbonisation.
- Enables action through joint ‘Communities of Interest’ that tackle critical drivers and disruptors to low carbon mobility from the perspective of the 3Cs.
- Provides an advocacy platform to influence political decision-making in international fora on climate change and sustainable development, as well as in other key multilateral processes, bilateral dialogues and gatherings of
the private sector and local and regional governments.
