TransForce advertise on their website that they offer carbon neutral transport solutions. Their website indicates they have a program to reduce carbon emissions. But there is no detail about how they offset emissions or that they do it 100% effectively. All carbon emissions limit the country's ability to meet the Paris 2015 zero net emissions target that Australia is a signatory to. To achieve that fossil fuel powered trucks need to be replaced by electric trucks or electric trains. Without taking such action TransForce is misrepresenting its contribution to averting global warming
