Below is the list of IRF Environment Publications
IRF Bulletin - Environment & Climate Change - Volume II
The response to our call for contributions for the Bulletin has been so overwhelming that we have been inspired to produce the Bulletin in two volumes. This is an auspicious sign of the growing commitment to sustainability being observed throughout our sector, as well as the willingness of IRF members to really 'make a difference'.
IRF Bulletin - Environment & Climate Change - Volume I
From the first dedicated journal on Environment to this issue on Environment and Climate Change, there have been ten IRF bulletins. Each issue had a focus on safety, reliability, affordability, congestion, sustainable materials and construction traffic management, to name but a few, and together they help to define our understanding of a sustainable transport system.
Environment Policy Statement
Achieving sound environmental and sustainability outcomes has long been an integral part of International Road Federation (IRF) members’ policy and practice. A landmark Policy Statement now reinforces their resolve to be at the vanguard of efforts to further improve the environmental performance of the road sector.
gTKP Thematic CD-ROM
A collection of selected Environmental & Climate Change documents from the gTKP knowledge library.
CHANGER - IRF Greenhouse gas Calculator
As we move into the future, better roads must be built by practitioners who are fully aware of the impact of their activities and of the possibilities for reducing that impact. The road infrastructure sector is taking on its responsibility. Willing to help in this global endeavor, the International Road Federation has designed a greenhouse gas calculator – CHANGER - specifically tailored to road infrastructure projects.
Innovative Practices for Greener Roads
This new IRF publication highlights a series of projects, products and practices illustrating exemplary commitment to the environment by our members throughout the world.

IRF White Paper - Roads and the Greenhouse Effect
The strange and little remarked phenomenon surrounding the “greenhouse effect” is that the solution to the problem appears to reside in giving money to the government through eco-taxes – as if eco-taxes were somehow to eradicate environmental problems. True, these eco-taxes are said to be used to enact ecologically sound policies. If this is the case, the positive impact of public policy on, say, congestion, is yet to be felt.
Road Traffic Noise
An IRF position paper outlining the road sector's contribution to European noise reduction objectives. (May 2004)
