Opening ceremony – Introduction & welcomes

Background from ITS Bordeaux 2015, input to COP21, climate change as high priority policy objective, guiding programmes towards decarbonisation
French Ministry of Transport : France Mobility programme & how ITS4Climate fits with national priorities; strategy towards COP 25, COP 26 etc.
Région Nouvelle-Aquitaine : regional policy for climate; commitment via Below2 Coalition; specific measures for transport and mobility decarbonisation
Bordeaux Métropole : strategies and programmes for ITS and for CO2 reduction

President, Région Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Élisabeth BORNE, Ministre auprès du ministre d’État, ministre de la Transition écologique et solidaire, chargée des Transports, French Ministry
Michel LABARDINElected member, Bordeaux Métropole


Plenary session I – The big picture: what’s the climate challenge to transport?
Faced with a climate emergency, how can ITS and public policy help fight global warming?

The climate challenge: what does “keeping global warming to 2 degrees / 1.5 degrees” mean for transport sector, how can national targets be cascaded down to region/city/organisation/individual level? What is the scale of change needed at each of these sub-national levels?
The ITS and business response: ITS comprise a wide range of tools such as electromobility, connected & automated vehicles, traffic management, public transport, city logistics and Mobility as a Service. How could these be optimised and deployed for maximum impact on CO2 emissions?
The public policy response: countries, regions and cities need to match the scale of the climate challenge with ambitious policies for energy, transport, mobility, economy – and rapidly adopt effective measures to implement them. They need to take the lead in informing and influencing their constituencies so that unpopular measures are accepted.

Executive session I – Public Authorities – what policies & priorities are needed for true sustainability?

Which cities are a model in setting demanding targets for transport emissions? How do they achieve buy-in by citizens and stakeholders?
Electrification can mean zero-carbon vehicles; what are the barriers and success factors for building up an electricity supply and charging point infrastructure? What of hydrogen?
Sustainable Energy (and Climate) Action Plans, Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans: are these tools effective for planning and implementation? Where have they led to lower emissions?
What potential, what requirements for carbon-free active modes, e.g. walking and cycling? How can we steer demand?

Executive III. Making it happen, enabling deployment: getting it done

Incentives, funding & finance 
Huge financing will be needed to implement effective ITS for climate measures; how much and where from? How can investment be encouraged, with what incentives?

Policy, legislation
Strong policies are needed, probably legislation – European, national and local. What mix of restriction, enablement and encouragement can be effective? Who should take the lead?

Economics and business models
CO2 has no economic cost or value today; how can we change that? How can carbon-saving be turned to business profit? How can necessary spending for climate mitigation actually benefit the economy? What of carbon budgets?

Changing behaviours
Decisions by businesses and individuals need to favour the low- and zero-carbon choices; what incentives and other measures can lead to the massive changes needed?

Executive IV. Doing it together

Doing it effectively, doing it together:

Communicating the message
What are the key messages of “ITS for Climate”? Who is the audience? What is the most effective way to inform & influence?

Using networks and alliances
Power in numbers, but which network to join? How effective are associations in powering deployment of sustainable transport? What potential for networks to cooperate, to share knowledge of effective measures against emissions?

Replication: pioneers and followers
Many individual “success stories” but are they well known? How can they be replicated widely? Do we need a new wave of pioneer cities showing how to cut CO2 emissions massively, using all the most effective tools?

Citizen and business engagement
Ultimately, we need total uptake by individuals and businesses, that travel and use or generate mobility demand. How can we generate such a level of engagement? Can we find “champions” to take the lead? Who will start us off…?

Plenary session II. Achievements and next steps

One small step for climate, a giant leap needed for the planet

Inspirational keynotes: 
To save our planet and its people, there’s no denying that a huge, “tectonic” change is needed in how we move and transport things…ITS and smart mobility for climate is a good start…and full-scale, total deployment is entirely possible. We just need the will to get going… 
…Let this first congress on ITS4C be the start of a long journey to real sustainability. Let us build the ITS4C toolbox and get it into the hands of all who need it, let’s bring it to the COP process, let’s connect all the networks and associations into a common movement for a shared purpose. Let’s get it done…
