Roads Australia: Launch of The Journey to Net-Zero Report (F2F Event)

Transforming transport systems to achieve net-zero emissions mobility is both a great challenge and one of the most powerful opportunities to achieve positive change. Industry must take collaborative action to create rapid change and help build a sustainable future for Australia.

The official launch of The Journey to Net-Zero - Inspiring Climate Action in the Australian Transport Sector is coming up soon. Book now, and learn how industry is stepping up to support decarbonisation through a new report.

Produced through an industry-first partnership between the Australasian Railway Association (ARA), Infrastructure Sustainability Council (ISC) and Roads Australia (RA), together with KPMG and Arup, The Journey to Net-Zero is a call to action that demonstrates how the transport sector can deliver more sustainable outcomes through innovation, ideation and collaboration. 

The Journey to Net-Zero sets out a series of proposed actions for government and industry that support a focus on place, drive emissions reduction, support investment in renewables and smart technologies, and promote engagement and collaboration across the transport asset lifecycle.
