As you are aware, GPST is a business and industry-led, action-oriented, multi-stakeholder initiative created by the International Road Transport Union (IRU) and the United Nations Global Compact in 2014. The mission of GPST is to mobilize transport industry actors representing all modes (aviation, maritime, rail, road), as well as companies from the logistics, insurance and technology sectors – in addition to UN system agencies, multilateral development banks, academia and civil society organizations to engage in effective international cooperation to support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

The joining of forces with UN OHRLLS and the World Ocean Council demonstrate our continued commitment to expand our partnership with sustainable transport stakeholders from all domains. This event will allow GPST and its Partners to generate awareness of the challenges that face the international community in sustaining the well-being of the Ocean.  In this context, GPST and its Members will contribute to identifying innovations and processes that will contribute to making maritime trade more efficient sustainable by facilitating trade and in doing so, relieving the pressure on this vital ocean resource that sustains all forms of life and the productivity of mankind.

 

GPST and its Partners invited guests, and the International Maritime Organization, as the global authority on maritime trade, to share their immense expertise, vast body of knowledge and best practices relating to sustainable maritime transport and trade. We invite you to contribute this important forum for dialogue in order to help to promote a better understanding of how governments, businesses and the international community can effectively contribute to the achievement of the sustainable development targets (SDGs) and ensure that all users of our Ocean act more sustainably.

 

As you are aware, the recent meeting of the GPST and the separate meeting of the GPST Policy Advisory Council confirmed the strategic priorities pursue by GPST, notably as reflected in the Ashgabat Process for the Advancement of Sustainable Transport (APAST), which provides a comprehensive framework for broad-based stakeholder cooperation to support the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SDGs. APAST, which embodies the policy recommendations expressed by UN Member States at the first UN Global Sustainable Transport Conference promises to accelerate the effective implementation of the SDGs by facilitating broader, more effective global actions on sustainable transport.
