Up Next: ITF CPB Gender Initiative

At the Corporate Partnership Board Plenary meeting held in November 2018 in Seoul, members of the CPB decided to launch a ‘CPB Gender Initiative’. On International Women’s Day, 8 March 2019, this will be launched commencing with a workshop focusing on the topics of 'increasing the attractiveness of the transport sector to women in the workforce, and hiring and retention of female talent.' A recent communication to all CPB members has been sent, and we look forward to your input and feedback by Wednesday 23 January at the latest.

Within the framework of the ITF Decarbonising Transport initiative, the ITF organised a two-day workshop on maritime transport on 26-27 November in Paris (photo). At this workshop, experts, policymakers from governments and international organisations and other key stakeholders shared knowledge on the best practices for uptake of alternative fuels in maritime transport, a topic widely considered to be important, but still fairly unexplored in terms of relevant policies and measures. The contributions to the workshop are available here.
