The International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) participants’ council comprises two dozen high-level civil servants, academic researchers, and independent transportation and environmental policy experts, who come together at regular intervals to collaborate as individuals on setting a global agenda for clean transportation. The members of the council are primarily drawn from the environmental and energy regulatory agencies in the major global vehicle markets. The organization’s technical staff, about thirty researchers and program personnel, works with national and regional governments as well as multilateral bodies such as the International Maritime Organization and the International Civil Aviation Organization. Through published research, sponsored workshops and other meetings, and engagement with public sector agencies, the ICCT leverages the collective expertise of a global network of specialists to promote national policies for clean, efficient transportation.

History

The ICCT grew out of a meeting in Bellagio, Italy of air quality regulators and experts from China, the European Union, France, Germany and the United States. The Bellagio meeting produced an unprecedented consensus on the principles of forward-thinking, progressive policies for motor vehicle technology and transportation fuels. The ICCT was established to build on that beginning. The council continues to convene every 18 months and works closely with the ICCT staff to identify best practices, emerging issues, technological advancements and opportunities to guide transportation policy developments around the world. The ICCT's core funding comes from the Hewlett Foundation and the ClimateWorks Foundation.
