Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA) have actively engaged with the Climate Change Authority as a part of their new research report, Economic recovery, resilience and prosperity after the coronavirus.

Importantly, the report identifies measures that will contribute to a ‘triple-win’ stimulus package in a low-emissions world offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to not only jump-start an economic recovery but also set up Australia to prosper for generations to come.

FTA and APSA will continue to advocate for measures to build resilience to the economic impacts of the changing climate and to position Australia to take advantage of our abundant clean energy resources and emerging low-emissions technologies.

One particularly exciting opportunity is the potential for Australia to produce zero carbon bunker fuel for shipping to simultaneously create a new export industry, promote jobs and enhance the nation’s fuel security.

In this Spring 2020 edition of Across Borders, we proudly showcase commentaries from members on how they are planning for the long term challenges associated with the global response to climate change.

We also extend our sincere appreciation to Brad Archer (CEO, Climate Change Authority) for his detailed foreword and for his personal interest in supply chains and transport related reform.

Our message is gaining traction that it is the efficient movement of goods through innovative solutions that will lead our economic recovery. FTA and APSA will continue a close relationship with the Authority and will support an increasing broader paradigm shift in government priorities in favour of exporters, importers and logistics providers.
