UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility & Transport

The UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility & Transport provides UIC members with a credible tool for external communication towards key stakeholders in order to present UIC members as responsible, forward-looking and innovative business leaders – as well as a tool for internal awareness raising and for continuous improvements of the rail sectors’ sustainability performance. The Declaration is supported by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Global Compact, is in line with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and is part of the voluntary commitments made at Rio+ 20 (see this link for more information).

The UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility & Transport is supported by a Reporting Guideline. Each member is encouraged to use the Declaration and the Reporting Guideline to define its key focus areas and priority issues in accordance with its individual sustainability strategies and action plans.

The UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility & Transport contains 18 messages on railway’s contribution to sustainable mobility and transport. The messages are targeting society, customers and the rail sector itself. The UIC Reporting Guideline on Sustainable Mobility & Transport provides explanation and support to each statement. Both documents have been developed within the framework of the UIC Environment, Energy & Sustainability (EES) Platform and are the results of the UIC Sustainability indicators project.
