What is the Government doing?

The Government is introducing a Fuel Efficiency (CO2) Standard. Fuel efficiency standards are common around the world to encourage vehicle suppliers to sell cleaner cars. Fuel efficiency standards help by:

  • reducing transport emissions, improving the air that you and your family breathe
  • giving you more choice about the cars that you can buy
  • saving you money at the petrol pump.

Most developed countries around the world have introduced fuel efficiency standards. Australia is being left behind, because it has not introduced a fuel efficiency standard. We need your help to design the right standard for Australia.
