We are delighted to announce that the Cycling Industry Climate Pledge has been launched, created by CIE and CONEBI led Cycling Industry Sustainability Expert Group. the Cycling Industry Climate Pledge is an industry–led pledge for companies across the supply chain to measure their carbon footprint and take individual action to significantly reduce their CO2 emissions. We're calling for all companies to sign the pledge and be part of the solution.

We believe that cycling is a force for good. One-fifth of all CO2 emissions worldwide are caused by transport: as the most climate-friendly mode of transport, cycling is playing an increasingly important role in decarbonising our world. Our industry’s products and services are central for the mobility and sustainability revolution. However, our industry needs to speed up efforts to become as climate friendly as the product itself.

The Cycling Industry Climate Action Pledge aims to challenge companies to take concrete steps towards significantly lowering their carbon footprint. That is why the pledge will be accompanied by a step–by–step guide to support companies at the start of their CO2 measurement and alleviation journey.

We pledge to:

1. Measure scope 1 and 2 emissions, set a reduction target and publish it by 2025 at the latest.

2. Measure scope 3 emissions (as a minimum step, your corporate footprint*), set a reduction target and publish it latest by 2030.

3. Create and publish a reduction target, with a clear strategy and a timeline.

4. Continually track performance and report progress achieved.

Through the pledge companies will be able to set their ambitions for reducing and measuring carbon emissions by 2030 and challenge their suppliers to join their ambition.

Join us — no matter where you are on your CSR journey — in creating a genuinely sustainable cycling industry!
