UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility and Transport

Getting to know the Declaration

Monday 10 September 2012

UIC is involved in sustainable development issues to the extent to launch a Declaration on Sustainable Mobility and Transport.
SBB marked the kick-off for the signing of the "UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility and Transport" and 49 other members follow its lead. Then the declaration was launched at the UN in May 2011 and is now part of the voluntary commitments made at Rio+20.

The start

After having been supported by the UIC General Assembly in June 2010 and a following feedback process, the UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility & Transport was signed by various members.

The first UIC member signing the UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility & Transport was SBB. The CEO of SBB, Mr. Andreas Meyer, signed the Declaration on 21st October 2010 in Bern, Switzerland.

SBB won the 2nd UIC Sustainability Awards with its Sustainability Strategy at the 11th UIC Sustainability Conference in Madrid in June 2010. The international independent jury with members from among others the United Nations, declared that with this strategy, approved by its Board, “SBB has made a measurable sustainability concept – including all three dimensions of sustainable development – as the basis for strategic development of the organisation.”

All UIC members were then encouraged to sign the UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility & Transport and, after having received detailed information on the signing process, they did so.

The 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.

The Declaration is available below :

The Declaration has been so far signed by 50 UIC Members . Get to know them here.

International Recognition

After having been signed, the UIC was officially recognized by the United Nations during the 19th Commission for Sustainable Development. If you wish to have more information, please follow the link. Now it forms part of Rio+20 Voluntary Commitments on Sustainable Transport. For more information please go to our section on Rio+20.
