Sustainability Victoria Chief Executive Officer Stan Krpan has been re-appointed to lead the organisation for another three years, from January 2017.
Mr Krpan has guided Sustainability Victoria for the past five years, providing leadership on the SV2015 strategy which included key reforms in integrated waste management and improved resource efficiency.
A notable achievement under his leadership was the release of the Statewide Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan in 2015 which was developed with industry and stakeholders.
An Australian-first, the plan outlines goals in planning for greater waste and resource recovery infrastructure over 30 years. It has become a template for other jurisdictions across Australia.
The organisational strategic plan, Towards SV2020, is being refreshed to continue delivering statewide planning for waste and resource recovery, and refocus Sustainability Victoria to help businesses and communities respond to climate change.
Towards SV2020 supports the Victorian Government’s commitment to climate change action and directs Victoria towards measurable outcomes, improved energy efficiency, and our statewide waste planning responsibilities.
In June 2016, Sustainability Victoria launched TAKE2, Australia’s first government-led voluntary climate change pledge program to encourage businesses, individuals and communities to pledge actions that contribute to Victoria’s net zero emissions target.
Since then, more than 1,500 Victorians have pledged their commitment to TAKE2.
Mr Krpan will continue to work with Sustainability Victoria’s Board and staff to raise the profile of climate change in our communities, while stimulating demand for sustainable products and services across the community.
