Friday 7 September 2012

UIC at the first meeting of the Parties to the Protocol (MOP) : for a long time, we have been involved in UNFCCC meetings, improving our relationship and promoting railways as a solution that meets current and future challenges.


The International Union of Railways (UIC), represented the rail transport sector at the United Nations Climate Change Conference which took place in Montreal, Canada, from 28 November to 9 December 2005.

It was the first meeting of the Parties to the Protocol (MOP) since the Kyoto Protocol entered into force in February 2005 and in parallel the Conference of the 189 countries Parties to the UN framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

At that time, it was the largest intergovernmental climate conference with 8 000 to 10 000 participants representing governments, international organisations and institutions, NGOs, industry and various interest groups.

Under the Kyoto Protocol, which took effect 16 February 2005, more than 30 industrialised countries were bound by concrete and legally binding emission reduction targets during the period 2008-2012.

The side event

In this context, UIC organised together with the Railway Association of Canada (RAC) an official “COP 11 / MOP 1 side event” where RAC presented the 10 year long Canadian railway emission story by looking at the emissions performance to date, the outlook for the future, and the ways reductions are being achieved.

UIC put focus on how to integrate transport policy and sustainable mobility to the climate change discussions, and promoted the energy advantage of railways and internalisation of external costs.
