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.
