Proof 1: We used the demographic dataset from the Informed Decisions community website to know the public's preferred Method of travel of work. The data below compares the Census data of the year 2011 & 2016 and we can see the preferred method of travel to work over the years is Car - as a driver.
We have had an insight of the data for South Australia as well Australia as nation wide.

Proof 2: As we identified in the previous data set the most frequent way of commuting was Private motor vehicle, we researched on how Transport is costing Australia in terms of Emissions. We researched and used the data from University of Wollongong, Australia and were shocked to know that the Transport emissions have gone up 64% since 1990. The Transport emissions, actual & trend, by quarter, September 2009 to September 2019 has seen a constant increase.

BASE CASE PROJECTIONS OF DIRECT GREENHOUSE GAS (CARBON DIOXIDE EQUIVALENT) EMISSIONS FOR AUSTRALIAN CIVIL TRANSPORT BY MODE, 1990-2020
Proof 3: From the above two datasets & research we brainstormed and came to the conclusion to check whether there are enough registered projects for Transport to support the cut off for Emissions. We used the Australian Government Data set for Clean Energy Regulator and realized that there was no interest in the project for Transport Q1 for 2019, fast forward to 2022 and datasets still say there are Negligible Transport projects in Q1 for 2022 as well.
Proof 4: After brainstorming around the problem, we came up with a solution - Czero with an aim to promote people to use public transport more along with public spaces in a carbon controlled way. As our solution bridges between public transport & public spaces we did a research to know how often people are accessing the public spaces. According to an article in the IT news Australia was grinding to halt, especially more post the Covid period. After numerous research we used the data set from Google - COVID-19 Community Mobility Report which proved there had been a major decrease in public spaces as well as transport
Conclusion (Why this Solution): After researching & brainstorming all the poof datasets we were convinced we can use Czero as an opportunity to bridge public transport & public spaces and connect both aspects to promote a better & healthier environment for future generation that leads to achieve Net Zero Emission by 2050
Clean Energy Regulator data shows lack of support for transport projects
Data shows there is limited (negligible) interest in transport project
Data shows australia is the hird largest source of emission
Lowest annual emission of carbon since 2008 (data that they have provided us
Research has indicated a decrease in the use of public spaces over the last 3 years
