Get the event summary and conclusions

This two-day workshop brings together governments, industry and civil society to explore how to expand green freight programs across Europe and promote collaboration between them.

Green Freight Programs supplement policies and empower industry to take practical actions that make the global freight sector more efficient and environmentally sustainable. The CCAC Global Green Freight Action Plan supports this by aligning and replicating green freight programs worldwide and integrating black carbon and air pollutants alongside CO2 emissions.
