UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility
Description/achievement of initiative

All UIC members will have signed the Declaration on Sustainable Mobility, which is a collection of 18 committments on sustainable development, including environmental, social and ethical business topics.

Implementation methodologies

UIC is constantly promoting its members to sign the Declaration on Sustainable Mobility. We are a global association of railway companies, with around 200 members. Currently 50 of our members are signatories to the declaration. As part of the commitment we ask members to provide reports on their progress in implementing sustainable development. We also produce periodically a global summary of sustainable development in the railways - the first edition will be launched at Rio+20.
