A land and sea transport project only covers vehicles and vessels being used within Australia. International usage, such as export shipping, is not eligible under the method.
A project must involve implementing emissions reduction activities on at least one vehicle or group of vehicles. Depending on the type of project, eligible vehicles may include light vehicles, trucks, buses, trains, marine vessels or mobile equipment such as mining and agricultural vehicles. You may include only land vehicles, only marine vessels, or a combination of both. Air transport is excluded, because is covered under a separate aviation method.
The land and sea transport method allows you to choose the activities you wish to implement, provided they fall into at least one of the following categories:
Each activity you undertake must be reasonably expected to reduce vehicle emissions. Examples of the types of activities that could be undertaken in a land and sea transport project include:
Land and sea transport projects must be set up as one of the following two types:
Splitting the land and sea transport method in this way provides flexible options for different transport businesses. For example, a
group of vehicles project is more likely to suit public or hire fleets and logistics companies that do not collect data at the level of individual vehicles. In contrast, an
aggregated individual vehicles project would suit those operations with vehicle-specific data, such as railways, shipping and some trucking operations. Such operations may plan to include only a few trains or ships in their project.
