Global freight demand will triple between 2015 and 2050 based on the current development, exerting pressure on cities’ current infrastructure and urban fabric. Founded in 2020, the ICLEI EcoLogistics Community serves as the first global city network committed to a sustainable urban freight future. The Community leads in the development of sustainable urban freight in their cities and drives global actions on the international stage through collaborative exchanges, action plans, and stakeholder engagements.
Through a service-oriented structure, collective learning exercises, peer-to-peer exchanges, and joint activities, the Community advocates the awareness of sustainable urban freight and helps committed cities accelerate the implementation. The Community also aims to support lessons learned on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through ecologistics.
Taoyuan City is the Chair and Host of the Community in 2020 and 2021. As the leading logistics hub in Taiwan, it aims to use the integration of technology, policies and planning as a vehicle for environmental, social, and economic sustainability in the urban freight sector.
