Zero Emission Vehicle National Innovation Council: A proposal for a tripartite-led transition to zero emission vehicles

The AMWU is proposing a national coordinating body for Australia’s transition to zero emission vehicles (ZEV) made up of government, industry, climate and energy policy organisations, and the unions covering workers in the industry.

This report recommends a National Innovation Council (NIC) for ZEVs that would take a consensus-based approach to shaping a just transition of carbon-intensive industries to ZEV manufacturing industries.

Through the creation of good jobs and sustainable industries, the ZEVNIC will be an active player in policymaking that delivers for Australian communities in transition, industries undergoing transformation and a sustainable environment long into the future.
