Australia’s first comprehensive guide to reaching zero emissions in the transport sector. Moving to zero: Accelerating the transition to zero-emissions transport is Australia’s first comprehensive guide to reaching zero emissions in the transportation sector.
More actions are needed if Australia’s transportation sector is to cut emissions in line with global goals. The Net Zero Momentum Tracker Transport Sector report evaluates the climate commitments of 32 Australian transport operators and logistics companies to assess their alignment with the goal of net zero emissions by 2050, a key element of the Paris Climate Agreement.
Submission to the inquiry into electric buses in regional and metropolitan public transport networks in New South Wales
Electric buses can reduce costs, improve air quality and support local industries. In December 2019 ClimateWorks Australia was invited to make a submission to the New South Wales government inquiry into electric buses for regional and metropolitan public transport networks.
Transport is one of the fastest growing sources of emissions in Australia. Electric vehicles fuelled by renewable energy can drastically reduce the sector’s emissions.
Australia’s electric vehicle industry is growing on the back of global trends, media interest and consumer awareness. But it still lags behind the rest of the world.
How can we move people and goods in the most efficient, safe and sustainable way? Private transport is transforming rapidly as electric and autonomous vehicles, car and ride share services disrupt the status quo.
Joint submission to the ministerial forum on vehicle emissions: proposed fuel efficiency standard for light vehicles
Improving light vehicle fuel efficiency can help Australia deliver on our international commitments, improve air quality, health outcomes and deliver financial savings.
Electric vehicles are a proven technology with strong environmental, economic and social benefits. Electric vehicles powered by renewable energy can reduce emissions and could help Australia meet its Paris-aligned targets at a lower cost.
Towards fuel efficient, lower emission light vehicles: Submission to the vehicle emissions discussion paper
The transport sector is one of the fastest growing sources of emissions within Australia, increasing by 47.5% since 1990. It also represents one of the most financially attractive emission reduction opportunities across the Australian economy.
The path forward for electric vehicles in Australia – Joint submission to the Federal Government vehicle emissions discussion paper
‘The path forward for electric vehicles in Australia’ has been prepared by a collaboration of industry representatives from the Electric Vehicle ecosystem, to explore the role of electric vehicles in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving air quality and achieving improvements in energy productivity.
On 1 December 2015, ClimateWorks released an Issues Paper considering a range of complementary measures that could be implemented in support of light vehicle CO2 emission standards, to help drive improvement in fuel economy across Australia’s light vehicle fleet.
ClimateWorks has identified clear improvement opportunities for fuel efficiency of the Victorian Government’s passenger vehicle fleet. This report provides an overview of the current fuel efficiency of the Victorian Government’s passenger vehicle fleet and considers a range of potential short and long term options to overcome key barriers to achieve improvements.
Improving the fuel efficiency of Australia’s light vehicle fleet can deliver substantial environmental and broader economic benefits. This briefing paper builds on the significant amount of work already undertaken on this issue over the past decade by government, industry, consumer groups and others.
