In the 12 months ending on the June 1, 2021 the Australian Bureau of Statistics recorded that there were approximately 16.6 million registered cars in Australia. The estimation of kilometers travelled by all these cars put together was 232.453 million. The state with the most kilometres for this year was Queensland with almost 15,000 km’s per car on average.

Now if we calculate this car’s carbon footprint based on an average petrol car, this car’s CO2 emissions are 3.42 metric tons per year! It is proven that a majority of our km’s are built up on our daily commute to and from work, so if you have the opportunity to take a different mode of transport be it public transport or even better, your bike, it would make a great contribution to the environment in the long run.
