Like any other human activity, road transport has an environmental impact. Our challenge is to lower its environmental footprint through increased fuel-efficiency and noise reduction. This requires appropriate policies and the coordinated efforts of all stakeholders.
For true road transport professionals, every road accident is one too many. Effectively improving road safety requires implementing a three-step approach: 1. Identify the main cause of accidents 2. Promote and implement effective, harmonised standards for the training of road transport professionals as provided by the IRU Academy and 3. Foster efficient public-private partnerships to improve road safety.
The IRU Academy is a professional road transport training organisation with a global reach. The IRU Academy creates a framework for capacity-building to enhance the efficiency, professionalism, effectiveness and accountability of the road transport training industry.
The IRU regularly organises topical events or event series aimed at its Members, the industry, policy makers and the media, ranging from workshops and roundtables to expert fora or international conferences.
IRU Events demonstrate the proactive dedication of the road transport industry to exchange information, know-how and expertise amongst the industry and with its partners at all level.
