Green House Gas Emissions

Opportunities to reduce the Project’s carbon footprint

Project Targets
  • 6% of all construction stage energy use offset in accordance with the Australian Government National Carbon Offset Standard

Infrastructure construction is a key driver for economic growth and employment, but it is also one of the main contributors to GHG emissions worldwide. JHCPB is committed to exploring the use of equipment, materials and methods to:

  • Improve energy efficiency
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Use renewable energy sources
  • Reduce embodied carbon content of materials

During the review period, the Project produced 2.75% of the Project’s forecasted emissions. JHCPB continues to investigate pathways to reduce the carbon footprint of the Project throughout the supply chain, and the implementation of innovative methods, processes and materials.
