Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Inaugural CPB Week kicks off in Paris

The first ITF Corporate Partnership Board (CPB) Week launches today with a roundtable on decarbonising transport.

More than 40 CEOs and high-level representatives of member companies of the ITF Corporate Partnership Board and ITF member countries join in two days of debate and discussions at a hybrid meeting held at the headquarters of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) in central Paris.

The roundtable discusses how private enterprises and the public sector can work together to achieve a step-change in translating ambition into effective climate action. It will lay the foundations for an input document from the Corporate Partnership Board for the upcoming COP26 climate negotiations in Glasgow in November.

On Wednesday, a second roundtable will discuss the projections for future transport demand and associated emissions to 2050 presented in the ITF Transport Outlook 2021.

This event will focus on the implications of the Outlook findings for the private sector, understand how aspects relevant to the private sector could be incorporated into the next edition, and identify actions the private sector can help overcome the challenges identified in the ITF Transport Outlook 2021.

A review of the 2021 ITF Virtual Summit and input for preparing the upcoming 2022 Summit of Transport Ministers are also part of the Corporate Partnership Board Week programme.

On the occasion of the first CPB Week, the ITF launched the latest CPB report, Data-driven Transport Infrastructure Maintenance’.  This report assesses trends in maintenance strategies, explores how the targeted use of data could make them more effective for different types of transport infrastructure, and looks into implications for policy.

In his opening remarks, ITF Secretary-General Young Tae Kim said:

“The CPB plays a vital role for the ITF by bringing a unique business perspective to the transport policy debate. The view from the terrain, as actors that provide transport services, equipment and infrastructure, inspires our policy analysis to look to the mobility horizons of tomorrow.”
