Programs

Let’s Drive Change

Through results-driven initiatives, Together for Safer Roads focuses on four program areas to create a sustainable impact on road safety.

Advocacy and Thought Leadership

Private sector initiatives and leadership have the independence to shape a practical path to greater road safety. Although, collaborating with the broader road safety community outside of the private sector is essential to make a sustainable impact.

Together for Safer Roads is committed to being the leader for the private sector in advancing road safety.

Investing in Road Safety: A Global Imperative for the Private Sector

With the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety, the private sector has an opportunity to drive a groundswell of meaningful cross-sector action. Companies can help save millions of lives, strengthen communities in which they do business, help build resilient economies, and in the process, improve their operations and long-term prospects.

Together for Safer Roads’ Expert Panel assessed progress since the United Nations General Assembly established the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety in 2010, identified gaps, and discussed the role of the private sector in advancing road safety.

Some of Together for Safer Roads’ member companies collaborated to examine how the private sector can contribute to this goal by exploring the shared knowledge, experience, and expertise of companies who maintain global fleets and highlighting some examples of road safety best practices.
