About the Corporate Partnership Board
The Corporate Partnership Board is the International Transport Forum’s platform for engaging with the private sector and enriching global transport policy discussion with a business perspective.
The ITF Corporate Partnership Board (CPB) brings together companies from across the transport modes and related sectors who want to work with policy-makers to find solutions to transport challenges.
Businesses are at the cutting edge of the rapidly changing world of transport and mobility. The ITF Corporate Partnership Board allows the private sector to contribute business insights to policy discussions, helps policy makers to better understand market-driven developments, and provides an effective mechanism for collaboration on issues of common interest.
Corporate Partners provide input to policy discussions by suggesting topics for different workstreams and participating in concrete projects. The current CPB workstreams include Decarbonising Transport, Gender and Transport, and a series of topical projects carried out in an annual cycle. The research for CPB projects is carried out within the ITF Secretariat in collaboration with Corporate Partners. The findings are published in the ITF Corporate Partnership Reports series.
Multiple opportunities exist throughout the year for companies and policy makers to engage in policy discussions in the context of the ITF. These include the ITF’s Annual Summit of Transport Ministers, held every May in Germany, and joint policy sessions bringing together Corporate Partners and officials from ITF’s 64 member countries. This close engagement enables Corporate Partners to gain a comprehensive perspective of how transport policy issues are framed and addressed in different contexts and countries.
Membership of the Corporate Partnership Board requires a three-year commitment from companies and involves a membership fee which funds the different CPB-initiated projects.
