Abstract

Greenhouse gas emissions from transport represent a significant share of emissions in Australia and continue to increase year by year. While there has been considerable public discussion in Australia regarding the transition towards a low-carbon economy, there is an urgent need to start addressing emissions from transport, the nation’s second-largest emitting sector. This White Paper provides a comprehensive overview of the transport sector’s contribution to greenhouse gas emissions in Australia and identifies possible transport solutions to tackle climate change.

The White Paper also covers developments and highlight trends in carbon pricing and offset mechanisms on an international level. These mechanisms provide the opportunity for public and private participation in carbon reduction and removal efforts. The White Paper offers recommendations for how companies can use carbon pricing and offsetting initiatives to integrate climate-related risks and opportunities into their decision-making process.
