Sustainability and Change

Sustainability and Change


It's well known and accepted that the transport and logistics industry is a significant contributor to global economic performance and much of our quality of life depends on the ability to trade and transport goods and services across the globe. The trade off however is that all this activity equates to being a significant contributor to global greenhouse gases, environmental degradation and climate change overall. With global population increasing rapidly, black swan events becoming more frequent and the economies of developing countries growing, the current situation will only worsen unless the industry is prepared to make some dramatic shifts away from the current business as usual. As a result, there is a call and growing need for organisations to transform and integrate environmentally and socially sound choices into their supply chains, strengthen their social licence to operate and stakeholder value, and position the organisation on a more sustainable and resilient footing towards long-term prosperity.


The aims of the CILTA Sustainability and Change sector are to:
  • provide visible and accountable leadership and strong advocacy for sustainability and change within the transport and logistics industry;
  • promote awareness of sustainability related regulation, guidelines, benchmarks and innovation;
  • promote opportunities for members to acquire sustainability and/or change related education, knowledge and/or consultation assistance;
  • identify and disseminate examples of good sustainability and change related case studies within the industry;

  • facilitate inter-organisational partnerships and/or knowledge sharing;
  • facilitate sector related guest speakers at CILTA events; and
