Policy in the Pub: Moving towards a cleaner, greener transport sector
From: Tuesday September 19, 2023, 5:30 pm
To: Tuesday September 19, 2023, 7:00 pm
As much as we all enjoy the conveniences that cars and trucks bring us, the transport sector makes up 19 per cent of Australia’s emissions, and cars and trucks emit dangerous pollutants that harm our health.
When it comes to cars, there are proven ways to reduce carbon emissions and unhealthy pollutants without costing taxpayers, or telling anyone what they can drive. And when it comes to trucks, there are simple changes we can make to keep the dirtiest trucks away from densely populated areas, and make sure that new trucks coming to Australia are as clean as possible. It’s time we caught up to the rest of the world.
Join us for a discussion on the policies we need to move towards a cleaner, greener transport sector.
