Transport red-lines as Australia’s carbon budget is spent years early Australia’s Transport emissions for Q4/FY2018 were again the highest on record. By 2030, will grow +29% on 2005 levels under current and proposed policies Global freight transport volumes will triple by 2050 Tyranny of distance For the third consecutive year, Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions are

The United States now offers the transport industry a choice of funding incentives to help vehicle operators and technology providers get near-term action rolling out clean transport equipment and refuelling infrastructure across the country.  On top of US$2.925 billion made available from the Volkswagen emissions scandal settlement, being shared between all States to accelerate deployment

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by “at least 50% by 2050 compared to 2008” aligns the shipping sector with the Paris Agreement temperature goals. Strong actions are needed. The IMO strategy relies on technological innovation and alternative energy sources for global shipping, and support of governments and shipping customers

As another Australian energy policy neglects Transport, our highest energy using sector, we now await the outcomes of the climate change policies review to arrest the sector's rising emissions intensity and declining fuel security. Under our Paris Agreement commitments we need to halve per capita emissions and a two-thirds reduction in emissions intensity of all economic activity, so for the

  On the face of it, Shipping is the most efficient of freight transport modes. Intermodal shipping containers kick-started rapid growth in trade globalisation 60 years ago, and container ships, tankers and bulk carriers have been getting bigger ever since. Carrying more freight with less fuel on a tonne-mile basis, shipping has the highest energy

Clean road transport game plan

Enjoyed reading Prime Mover magazine's recent sustainability report series. Signing the COP21 Paris accord certainly does accelerate the need for a commercial road transport industry game plan to lead Australian business and government policy responses or we’ll be left wondering what happened post-2020. The language has changed: “low carbon” ambitions of last century are obsolete; specific,

Emissions Reduction Fund – A Transport Opportunity worth Taking?

I stand corrected. Last year I described the Direct Action replacement of the previous government’s carbon pricing mechanism as offering transport companies nothing, yet in the first Emission Reduction Fund (ERF) auction in April, transport group AHG was awarded a $2 million contract to reduce its emissions. For the $1.89 billion (75%) of ERF funding

Manufacturers Target Supply Chain Emissions

As leading corporations respond to increasing customer, investor and community pressures to reduce environmental impacts, it is becoming clear that the biggest impacts occur outside their control but within their influence along the value chain. For some sectors such as retail and food manufacturing, latest estimates put their supply chain emissions at 50% to 90%
