The transport industry is one of Australia's fastest-growing contributors to carbon emissions, accounting for 16 per cent of our nation's emissions. Excessive engine brake noise is also recognised as a public health issue.
Better environmental outcomes, such as reducing emissions in the transport industry is a strategic priority for the NTC.
The NTC researches and establishes model laws addressing issues such as engine brake noise. We also deliver project initiatives such as performance-based standards and B-triples that are anticipated to reduce carbon emission by around 8 million tonnes, contributing to a better environment for all Australians.Last Updated: 6/8/2015
