Transport Climate Action Directory

The Transport Climate Action Directory is an online database of transport CO2 reduction policy measures. It contains more than 60 different mitigation measures along with the evidence-base needed to assess their effectiveness. It helps decision makers to translate their decarbonisation ambitions into actions and achieve their climate objectives. It provides them with a range of options that can deliver concrete decarbonisation outcomes for transport in their specific context.

For ease of use, the directory presents decarbonisation measures for five different categories:

  • Improved design, operations and planning of transport systems
  • Electrification
  • Low-carbon fuels and energy vectors
  • Mode shift and demand management
  • Innovation and up-scaling

The Transport Climate Action Directory is a project of the Decarbonising Transport initiative, a partnership of more than 70 governments, organisations, institutions, foundations and companies under the auspices of the International Transport Forum. The project is anchored within the ITF Corporate Partnership Board. 

The directory is a work in progress. Additional measures will be reviewed and added continuously. Contact us for more information.

The ITF gratefully acknowledges the work of the reviewers involved the directory. See Directory endorsements.
