Improving light vehicle fuel efficiency can help Australia deliver on our international commitments, improve air quality, health outcomes and deliver financial savings.

In 2017, Climateworks collaborated with Future Climate Australia to respond to government proposals on fuel efficiency standards for light vehicles. Our submission shows the impact of the proposed standards on emissions until 2030 and 2040 and showed that greater  financial benefits, including savings for motorists, would be created by the more stringent standards. It also outlined the costs of delaying implementation and the benefit of including additional policy measures.
