Climate change mitigation and adaptation: managing our climate and society
For as long as fossil fuels are used for energy and industrial processes, carbon capture and storage is an essential technology to limit emissions and keep the global rise in temperature to well below 2°C
Australia needs a suite of complementary measures to incentivise innovation in our business sector
ATSE strongly supports emissions reductions across all sectors while taking steps to balance the economic impacts of this transition.
Australian governments must work together to establish a national framework to drive efficient investment in Australia’s electricity grid to support its ongoing reliability and security while achieving Australia’s emission reduction targets
The governments of Australia should develop, and commit to, a new decadal strategy for national water reform that will ensure secure, sustainable, and equitable water supplies for Australian communities, industries and the environment
There are compelling benefits to full automation of Australia’s road system and it is vital that Australia’s policies and infrastructure anticipate the exponential rate of technological advancement and uptake
Engineers are a crucial part of the collaboration that is our future
ATSE is supportive of the new approach to the Code being principles based
