International Road Transport Union

IRU is the world road transport organisation, the voice of more than 3.5 million mobility and logistics operators worldwide through a member network of national transport associations, industry bodies and multinational companies. Advancing safe, efficient and green commercial road transport, IRU brings together businesses, partnering with those who regulate, supply and use our industry.

Trucks, buses, coaches and taxis are the lifeblood of sustainable development, delivering economic prosperity and social inclusion everywhere. Decarbonising commercial road transport, without disrupting the mobility and logistics services that people depend on, is, therefore, a huge challenge, but also a huge opportunity.

IRU’s Green Compact is the industry’s collective commitment to become carbon neutral by 2050. IRU is researching, testing, sharing and scaling up green road transport solutions, developing a roadmap that is both cost-effective for the public and private sectors, and allows more transport demand fluctuations to be met. Both are crucial to maintaining road transport’s resilience in being able to rapidly adapt supply chains and mobility networks, enabling governments, citizens and businesses to better manage crises and change.
