Joint Submission to the Ministerial Forum on Vehicle Emissions: Proposed Fuel Efficiency Standard for Light Vehicles [PDF 827.43 KB]

A joint submission by ClimateWorks Australia and Future Climate Australia to the Ministerial Forum on Vehicle Emissions, illustrating that improving light vehicle fuel efficiency will help deliver Australia’s international climate commitments, improve air quality, reduce health impacts and deliver significant financial savings to the Australian economy.

Building Code Energy Performance Trajectory Project – Issues Paper [PDF 2.58 MB]

ClimateWorks Australia has partnered with the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC) to support the development of an industry-led and evidence-based pathway towards ambitious, long-term targets for energy performance requirements within the National Construction Code. The first publication in this project is an Issues Paper, with an interim report on project findings due in November 2017 and a final report including a policy pathway and cost-benefit analysis due in March of 2018.

The State of Electric Vehicles in Australia [PDF 7.08 MB]

The State of Electric Vehicles in Australia report provides an up-to-date assessment of Australia’s electric vehicle industry. While electric vehicles currently only make up 0.1% of the Australian vehicle market, our analysis of electric vehicle uptake, policy and consumer attitudes shows that momentum is building.

ClimateWorks Australia Submission to the Review of Australia's climate change policies [PDF 1.36 MB]

ClimateWorks' submission to the review of Australia's climate change policies outline the importance of a target of net zero emissions by 2050. Our submission draws on engagement with key stakeholders, as well as our extensive research, which demonstrates we can reach net zero emissions while growing employment and our economy. The submission also makes the case that while delay and policy uncertainty will increase costs, a net zero by 2050 target, as part of a long-term plan, enables an effective transition.

Towards Fuel Efficient, Lower Emission Light Vehicles: Submission to the Vehicle Emissions Discussion Paper [PDF 6.24 MB]

The transport sector is one of the fastest growing sources of emissions within Australia, increasing by 47.5% since 1990, however it also represents one of the most financially attractive emission reduction opportunities across the Australian economy. ClimateWorks and Future Climate Australia have identified that best practice light vehicle CO2 emission standards can reduce emissions from light vehicles by about 100 million tonnes between 2020 to 2030 - close to 10% of the Federal Government’s emissions reduction target over that period.
