The state and the local authorities are to formulate basic plans (for 10 years) and imple-mentation plans (annually) and to allocate necessary budgets for the development of a sustainable transport logistics system. These plans should be consistent with South Korea's 2007 Sustainable Development Act (amended 2010).

Necessary measures shall be taken by the state and local governments to reduce GHG emissions in order to implement the UNFCCC. The Ministry will develop a coefficient for calculating emissions per unit of transport logistics, and utilise the data collected in policy development.

Other provisions deal with calculation and management of socio-economic costs, traffic management, transport sharing structures, promotion of mass transport and carbon free transport, development of environment friendly facilities and technology, linking with urban planning, education etc.
