Integrated Committee on Climate Change

Climate change is an important issue for TAC and all Canadians, and the transportation sector both contributes to and is affected by climate change. The Integrated Committee on Climate Change (ICCC), reporting to TAC’s councils, provides a centre of expertise within TAC on climate change issues and greenhouse gas reduction initiatives to mitigate climate change and adaptation, and promote resilient transportation infrastructure and services.

The objectives of the ICCC are to:

  • Identify and address technical issues relating to climate change mitigation and adaptation, including the development of best practices.
  • Identify, prioritize and undertake research and development related to climate change.
  • Maintain awareness of developments in climate change and related issues among TAC councils, committees and membership.
  • Provide leadership and a coordinating role on the topic of climate change, to ensure that:
  • TAC councils and committees are not duplicating work by others within or outside the organization,
  • TAC councils and committees collaborate on their initiatives where it is beneficial to do so, and subject-matter gaps are addressed.

The current Chair and Vice-chair of the Committee are Martin Hotte and Ahsan Habib. Membership will consist of representatives with expertise and interest in climate change issues, with representation being diverse, both geographically and across sectors.
