Roadmap Transport

This is the biggest single contribution to carbon emissions for most households at 34%. We like flying overseas for holidays and the convenience of taking the car but if we can reduce our use of private, fossil-fuel driven vehicles and choose public transport (eg buses, trains, ferries) or even better walk or cycle, we can quickly reduce our emissions footprint.

Roadmap-To-Zero logo Transport Checklist
  • Limit car use as much as you can. Walk, cycle or use public transport instead
  • If you can only reach your place of work by car, consider setting up a carpool
  • Purchase carbon credits to offset your car’s emissions
  • Replace a face to face meeting with a virtual meeting online
  • Limit your flights. Holiday locally and buy carbon offsets if you must fly
  • Pack as light as possible when you travel. (More weight = more energy/emissions.)
  • Next time you purchase a car, invest in an electric vehicle.
