About Us

The “Sustainable Transport in China” Blog informs about latest developments in green and sustainable transport. We provide news, opinions and reports on policy and technology developments in urban transportation, freight transportation, and people transportation in China and around the world.

The blog is run by the Sustainable Transport team at Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in Beijing. The projects in our area of Sustainable Transport support the ambitions of the Chinese government to tackle challenges of increased passenger and freight transport demand. We work towards a successful combination of a mobility transition and the energy transition in the transport sector in order to guarantee climate and environmental protection.

The goal of the Sino-German Cooperation on Low Carbon Transport (CLCT) is to develop MRV tools and avoid/shift/improve policies. The project also implements pilots to reduce urban traffic emissions through efficient application of existing as well as new technologies, such as sharing platforms, and supports the Chinese partners to improve inter-city transportation.

The project Mobility and Fuels Strategy as a Contribution to the Transport Transition in China – Pilot project in the Jing-Jin-Ji region, assesses the feasibility of future technologies and fuels for the aviation, shipping and heavy-duty truck industry along with the necessary infrastructure development in the region of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei. At the same time, the project looks at future mobility topics like urban mobility concepts, intelligent transport systems, digitalization, and new mobility services.

The Sino-German Cooperation on Electro-Mobility project works as an intelligence unit and assesses all market developments in the field of electro-mobility in China- from technologies, policies, charging infrastructure to battery recycling, 2nd life applications and much more.
