The Fleet Forum Sustainability Summit
The Fleet Forum Summit 2023 is focused on defining sector-wide goals related to sustainable transport and identifying the key topics that require collaborative effort to achieve them. The overarching objective is to develop common goals and a shared agenda for sustainable transportation that can guide the efforts of our community.
Getting insight in the current footprint from transport in the aid and development sector is a crucial first step. Some organisations already made steps, others did not yet. How can we get aligned in our approach? What are the main impacting factors and how do we address these to substantially reduce environmental impact? Wat is needed to realise it and how do we collaborate?
These are the type of topics that we will discuss during the Summit on Tuesday 24 October. The Summit is a members-only event, and we limited the attendance to one representative per member organisation. By keeping the number of participants rather small we can work effectively and can close the Summit with concrete results. Besides, a lower number of people means less travel and therefore less emissions.
All output from the Virtual Annual Conference in June will be used as input for the Summit. With the Conference Steering Group, we are working on the preparation of the Summit. We will be in touch with our member organisations well in advance to ensure that the agenda is set, and it is clear what kind of decisions we would like to agree on.
We are delighted to share that ICRC will host the Summit, which will take place in Geneva, Switzerland. We will start in the afternoon on Monday 23 October and continue on Tuesday 24 October 2023. It will be organised back-to-back with AIDEX. On Wednesday 25 October Aidex will schedule a workshop to share the outcome of the Summit and discuss with an even wider community. AIDEX invites all our members for this lunch workshop. A great opportunity to engage a wider community and have our ideas challenged.
Details coming soon
More details about the 2023 Summit, including the programme, speakers, and accommodation, will be shared very soon.
