New: Transport Climate Action Directory

PTV Group supports in the description of the effects of decarbonization measures

Karlsruhe, 2020/07/07. A new database of policy measures to reduce transport CO2 emissions is online now: The Transport Climate Action Directory (TCAD) is publicly available and helps decision-makers with a range of options that can deliver concrete decarbonization outcomes for transport in their specific national context, helping them to translate their ambitions into actions. Technology provider PTV Group was part of the unique decarbonization transport initiative.

The directory contains more than 60 different mitigation measures along with the evidence-base needed to assess their effectiveness. Christian U. Haas, CEO of PTV Group says: ‘It’s great to be part of this outstanding decarbonization initiative and to support with knowledge and technology to describe the impacts of concrete measures to optimize mobility and transportation for a cleaner and smarter future.’

The Transport Climate Action Directory specifically aims to support countries in the upcoming first revision of their nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) for the 2021 Conference of Parties (COP26) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The project is based on a partnership of more than 70 governments, organizations, institutions, foundations, and companies under the auspices of the International Transport Forum. It is supported with funding from the European Commission's Horizon 2020 program and the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of Germany's Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.
