Australia’s infrastructure sector, including key economic, transport and social assets, accounts for a substantial portion of national greenhouse gas emissions.
The CEFC is investing across the sector to influence clean energy standards for social and economic infrastructure assets, as well as transport and electricity. Infrastructure assets are often long-lived and provide critical services for modern societies. These assets offer significant potential for emissions abatement. Improvements made to existing asset operations or efficiencies implemented at design and construction stages provide ongoing benefits.
