A proposed transport plan for the next decade in Auckland has acknowledged that it will not reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, despite the city committing to halving its carbon footprint, Stuff reveals. A key component of the draft Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) noted that even the government proposals yet to be implemented, such as clean car standards, would likely only hold emissions at 2016 levels and will push the government to incentivize switching to electric cars. The RLTP provides limited insight into how an estimated 64 percent reduction in Auckland’s transport emissions can be achieved.
