Improving Fuel Economy in Australia
High Level Seminar, 2 March 2011, Melbourne, Australia
The GFEI co-hosted a high level seminar to discuss options for the development of an Australian CO2 emissions standard for light vehicles.

GFEI brought senior international experts together with key Australian stakeholders in this day-long event. Attendees were able to consider the implications for Australia of global trends and experience, and how this might inform the decisions which the Australian Government needs to take in order to deliver on their commitment to develop a CO2 emissions standard.

The conference was followed by two days of consultation, including meetings with the motoring clubs, NGOs and academia, the car manufacturers and the federal & state government representatives; the second day involved technical discussions with the expert group who are tasked with developing Australia’s emission standards.
