Help reduce transport emissions


Transport is expected to make up 60% of emissions in the ACT from 2020. The majority of these emissions are from private car use.

There is a lot that individuals can do to tackle climate change by choosing sustainable forms of transport and reducing private car use as much as possible.

Did you know?

Each day you leave your car at home, you reduce your carbon footprint by around 8 kg.

Switching to an electric vehicle could save you around $18,000 on running costs over ten years, as well as the potential to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions by around 3 tonnes per year.

The ACT Government offers a 20% registration discount and a stamp duty exemption for zero emissions vehicles. Electric motor bikes and scooters are also eligible for a 20% registration discount.
