The reality of climate change means we cannot — and have not — been sitting idly by without reducing our use of non-renewable-materials and energy. We’re redesigning the materials and methods we use with the goal of transforming our environmental impacts and bringing them ever closer to net zero.
This reimagining of our operations extends to the protections we give to local flora and fauna, and to reducing the impact of noise and air pollution on communities living near our roads.
- Transitioning to renewables
95% of our emissions derive from electricity. From 2022 onwards, 80% of the electricity used for Brisbane operations will come from wind power.
- Reductions in electricity use
We are improving the energy efficiency of our motorways and expect to reduce our energy usage by 10% in 10 years (from 2013).
- Technological innovations
Our tunnel ventilation systems are being upgraded to adapt better to traffic flow, and this will allow us to maintain safe air quality in a more efficient manner.
- Low and Zero Emission Fleets
With 5% of our operating emissions coming from fuel use, we are investigating the replacement of our existing fleets with low and zero-emission vehicle options.
- GOFAR Eco-driving trial
We partnered with GOFAR in 2021 to pilot an eco-driving trial with some of our Queensland customers to try to help reduce their carbon impact on the road. Read more about how it went and find some extra eco-driving resources
