Zero emissions transport


Transport is expected to account for over 60% of ACT emissions from 2020. Reducing emissions from transport is therefore a high priority and presents one of the biggest challenges in meeting our 2025 target and achieving net zero emissions in the longer term. Responding to this challenge will require fundamental changes in how we plan and deliver transport networks and how we choose to travel.

The actions included in the ACT Climate Change Strategy 2019-2025 complement the Draft Moving Canberra: Integrated Transport Strategy and form a part of the action plan for implementing that strategy. They also complement the ACT Planning Strategy 2018, which supports a compact and efficient city through sustainable urban growth and supports high levels of active travel and public transport accessibility.

Key elements of Government's response to this challenge are:

Actions

Investigate regulatory options to drive the transition to zero emissions commercial vehicle fleets.
