ICLEI- Local Governments for Sustainability (shortly put, ICLEI) is a global network of more than 1,750 cities committed to sustainable development.
Since 2016, ICLEI has implemented the EcoLogistics project, promoting transportation of goods by giving priority to health, safety, people-centered urban development and low-emission. At the same time, EcoLogistics encourages circular and regional economies to limit the growth of freight transport.
EcoLogistics, managed by ICKEI, is the first community in the world committed to sustainability and innovation in the field of urban logistics. Ecologistics is supported with professional resources from industrial, governmental, and academic sectors throughout the world.
Through low-emission, nature-based, equitable, resilient and circular development, ICLEI continually accelerates systematic changes in cities for actively leading more than ¼ of global population to live a more sustainable living.
On the event of ICLEI Resilience Cities in June, 2019, Gino Van Begin, Secretary General of ICLEI, wholeheartedly supported Taoyuan City to participate in EcoLogistics project and he looked forward to seeing Taoyuan City as indicative of sustainable urban freight. Wen-Tsan Cheng, former mayor of Taoyuan City, was invited as the chair of future EcoLogistics campaign.
