Episode 21: Talkin’ Transport

13.09.18 By

Australia is stuck in the slow lane on transport pollution, as one of just a handful of OECD countries, without greenhouse gas emission standards for vehicles, according to the latest Climate Council report.  

The Climate Council’s ‘Waiting for the Green Light: Transport Solutions to Climate Change’ report shows that transport is Australia’s second largest source of greenhouse gas pollution, after electricity.

It also highlights that global transport pollution levels were on track to double by 2050, with Australia taking a backseat on transport efficiency, lagging behind Russia, Mexico and Indonesia.
