Home > Cooperation with the UN > UIC and UNEP


The UNEP is the United Nations Environment Program launched in 1963 whose main mission is to "provide leadership and encourage partnership in caring for the environment by inspiring, informing, and enabling nations and peoples to improve their quality of life without compromising that of future generations".
See how UIC has worked together with UNEP :

UIC and UNEP have worked together on three initiatives.

Train to Copenhagen:

UIC was delighted to welcome UNEP Executive Director Mr. Achim Steiner on the “Climate Express” train, and UNEP were official supporters of the initiative . For more information please see this article.

Here you can see Mr Achim Steiner taking the Train to Copenhagen :

UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility and Transport:

The Declaration features a supportive quote from Mr. Steiner. For more information about the declaration please click here.

The quote is :

“Moving towards sustainable mobility is a key issue for our modern societies, for the transport sector’s far reaching effects on economic and social development and the environment. It involves rethinking current transport systems, promoting inter-modality and encouraging the use of the most energy efficient mode of transport for a given transport situation, as well as efforts in making each mode as clean and efficient as possible.
This is a challenge that requires action and cooperation by all players of society: governments, local authorities, private business, and the individual.
I applaud the UIC Declaration on Sustainable Mobility & Transport as it demonstrates the commitment by UIC members to continue to pursue the sustainability track, to strengthen the environmental advantages that rail transport features, and further improve environmental performance. I look forward to an ever deeper collaboration between UNEP and the Union.”
