Breakout Session

Vehicle Emissions – What are the Policy Makers Doing to Help?

Government accused over Australia’s failure to cut vehicle emissions.

Modelling produced by climate scientist Bill Hare for the Australian Conservation Foundation shows emissions from transport are climbing fast and are projected to be 82% higher in 2030 than they were in 1990. Despite this, the government had not made a decision on “how or when” standards to cut carbon pollution from vehicles might be implemented.

This session is designed to look at the steps the industry could take to set efficiency standards within their own organisations. We cannot turn a blind eye to the fact that transport accounts for 18% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions, making it the second largest source.

The responsibility sits with us all.
