Transport Task Group (TTG)

Transport Task Group (TTG)

The Transport Task Group (TTG) was established in 2015 by the G20 in order to identify and exchange best practices among G20 countries on the implementation of cost-effective energy efficiency and emission control measures in the transport sector. It provides domestic support and enhances capability for action to reduce the energy and environmental impacts of motor transport, especially heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs), for participating G20 countries.

Recent developments

Current activities

Three main activities marked the year for the TTG:

  • Carrying out a ‘deep dive’ (an in-depth, focused policy project) on the measurement and certification of HDVs and their components to help countries develop HDV efficiency standards and labelling programmes.
  • Conducting policy exchanges, via webinars, on topics such as the European Commission proposal for HDV CO2 standards, Argentina’s HDV efficiency programmes and the United States’ HDV Phase 2 GHG standards.
  • Convening its first in-person meeting to take stock of important progress made in improving the energy efficiency and environmental performance of HDVs in G20 economies, and to engage in strategic discussions on vision and activities for the coming years.

Achievements

Over the years, the TTG has supported the expanded adoption of world-class standards for HDVs by:
