Have your say on how to reduce emissions in transport and transport infrastructure by 22 December 2023.
This consultation is hosted by the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts (DITRDCA).
As part of the Net Zero Plan, the Australian Government is developing 6 sectoral plans to reduce emissions:
- agriculture and land
- electricity and energy
- the built environment.
Emissions from the waste sector will be included in the industry plan, and a focus on the circular economy will be a cross-cutting issue for all sectors.
Your input will be used to help draft the transport plan. DITRDCA will also seek your feedback on the draft plan early in 2024.
The process aims to align environmental outcomes, business needs and community expectations as we work towards our commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
The Government is already driving emissions reduction in the transport sector by:
- increasing the uptake of electric vehicles through initiatives like the Electric Car Discount
- expanding the EV charging network through the National Electric Vehicle Strategy
- providing motorists with more choice of efficient cars, including EVs, by introducing a Fuel Efficiency Standard (FES).
