The goal of the ICCT is to dramatically reduce conventional pollutant
and greenhouse gas emissions from personal, public and goods transportation
in order to improve air quality and human health, and mitigate climate
change. The Council is made of the leading regulators and experts
from around the world that participate as individuals based on their
experience with air quality and transportation issues. The ICCT
promotes best practices and comprehensive solutions to improve vehicle
emissions and efficiency, increase fuel quality and sustainability
of alternative fuels, reduce pollution from the in-use fleet, and
curtail emissions from international goods movement.
