Declaration Towards Low-Carbon Mobility Planning and Services for Functional Urban Areas

LOW-CARB seeks to increase the use of public transport, foster multimodal mobility and reduce CO2 emissions from private motorized modes, which account for around 90 percent of the total urban transport emissions. It does this by encouraging integrated low carbon mobility planning in functional urban areas, a learning programme and pilot investments.

Symbolising this commitment, the ‘LOW-CARB’ Declaration represents a voluntary statement to embrace the project's objectives by: 
  i) introducing and advocating low-carbon mobility planning for functional urban areas; 
  ii) organising or participating in the project’s respective capacity building programme; and/or 
  iii) initiating or following LOW-CARB’s pilot actions (to be regularly featured in our website and its archive news sections).

Local authorities, public transport companies, city associations, NGOs, ‘low-carb’ consultancies, the media, and related low-carb and planning projects are all invited to sign the Declaration, which is online here.
