- Improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the industry
With our colleagues in the ETB, we strive to connect:
- Our members to work together more effectively
- With EU priorities
- On environmental and social challenges
- Public and private initiatives

- The European market to global demand
- All transportation modalities
UN Global Compact
TIP is part of the United Nations Global Compact; a United Nations initiative to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies, and to report on their implementation. It is a principle-based framework for businesses, stating ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Under the Global Compact, companies are brought together with UN agencies, labour groups and civil society.
The UN Global Compact is the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative.
