Trucks Rev up Australia’s Emissions

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 at record highs, driven largely by transport emissions and the continuing rapid rise in diesel used by trucks. Heavy-duty vehicles produce most of every city’s smog and toxic air pollution and road freight is the fastest growing greenhouse gas emitter on the planet. Growing populations

$5 billion for Clean Transport

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 of advanced clean transportation technologies and reduce harmful emissions, various State and public utility schemes are offering millions of dollars to support residential charging station construction and the electrification of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. "The problem faced by fleets and other stakeholders will no longer

Act Now to Achieve IMO Carbon Targets – ITF

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 will be essential to realise this new level of ambition. With intuitive timing, a tremendous amount of guidance has just been made available by the International Transport Forum, releasing a series of reports over the last month that provide comprehensive analysis of the options and

Transport Emissions Policy: Kicking the Big, Growing Can down the Road

Transport has Australia’s biggest emission reduction task – and little government support. The 2017 Review of Climate Change Policies released over Christmas presents a re-hash of current policies and policy reviews, deferring new progress to after the 2019 federal election. Transport emissions will continue growing at record levels in the meantime, begging the question: How long can we keep kicking the transport emissions Can down the road? Australia’s Fast-Growing Transport Emissions Transport is the main culprit in Australia’s rising greenhouse gas emissions story, it’s emissions now at record highs driven by ever-growing demand for freight and passenger movement.
