Environmentally sustainable transport

The transport system contributes to the Victorian Government’s commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and promotes the transition to environmentally sustainable transport by contributing to healthy, sustainable and liveable communities.

Transport is Victoria’s second biggest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.

By better managing our effect on the natural environment, we can support healthy and vibrant communities.

What this means

We are committed to minimising the impact of transport on the environment wherever possible by pursuing low-energy and zero-emissions solutions.

Recycled First Policy

The Recycled First Policy supports the Victorian Government’s circular economy strategy, Recycling Victoria – a 10-year plan to overhaul the state’s recycling sector, grow domestic recycling capabilities and fuel innovation.

Since March 2020, all tenderers on Victorian major transport projects have had to demonstrate within their bid how they will optimise the use of recycled and reused materials at the levels allowed under current standards and specifications.
