Gearing up for COP21: How can transport decarbonise?
Transport generates 23% of CO2 emissions from fuel combustion. This share needs to fall to stay within the 2 degree Celsius scenario for climate mitigation. At the COP21 climate change conference in Paris from 30 November to 11 December, ITF will present work to support that objective on the themes of urban mobility, international freight transport, aviation emissions and climate change adaptation. During COP21, ITF will host three events in a joint workspace with OECD, the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA):
- "Mitigating the climate change impacts of urban travel" - ITF expert session on Wednesday 2 December 17:15-18:45, OECD Workspace (Blue Zone)
- ITF Ministers' Lunchtime debate "Towards a low-carbon transport future: COP21 and beyond" on Thursday 3 December 14:00-14:45, OECD Workspace (Blue Zone)
- "Flying clean: limiting the CO2 emissions from international aviation", ITF expert session on Wednesday 9 December 11:15-12:45, OECD Workspace (Blue Zone)
