A leaner, greener transport sector is a key pillar of a low carbon economy and therefore plays an important role inUNEP Green Economy Initiative. In 20099, UNEP with the International Energy Agency, the FIA Foundation and the OECD based International Transport Forum launched the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI). As per IPCC and G8argets, the initiative targets an improvement of the efficiency of the global vehicle fleet of at least 50% by
2050. UNEP’s role within the GFEI is to support non-OECD countries to develop efficient and clean vehicles policies.
Pilot projects in all regions have been set up and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) is supporting this new
programme. Improving vehicle efficiency is recognised as one of the most efficient ways to reduce GHG emissions. UNEP is advising countries around the world on policies for cleaner and more efficient vehicles
Neither road safety nor low-carbon transport can be accomplished unless non-motorised transport (NMT) is taken into full consideration. Share the Road: Invest in Walking and Cycling is a joint initiative of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the FIA Foundation for the Automobile and Society (FIA Foundation) and a growing list of partner organizations.
