Australian Transport Sector Road Map to Net Zero Emissions

This grant supports the development of a Net Zero Emissions Roadmap for Transport. In Australia, the transport sector is the second largest source of emissions after electricity, accounting for 102 million tonnes of CO2 in 2018 or 18 per cent. And transport emissions are rising, and ClimateWorks' report Tracking Progress found that they has risen by 19 per cent since 2005.

The Roadmap will combine research and engagement to set transport on the path to net zero emissions. ClimateWorks has successfully done this for the buildings sector and will apply similar methodologies here. CWA will model key opportunities and points of leverage for transforming the transport sector and investigate alternative pathways for hard to abate sub-sectors. They will also conduct a system mapping exercise to identify key decision makers and provide recommendations on the policies and investments required for this transformation, both in the short and the longer term.
