-Sustainability Victoria's objective, Sustainability Victoria Act 2005
Sustainability Victoria supports Victorians to be more sustainable in their everyday life; in our homes and our jobs; in our schools and communities and in the systems and infrastructure that support a thriving Victorian economy and lifestyle.
We want to improve the way Victoria manages its resources and help communities to take action on climate change.
We do this in lots of ways. We provide expert advice and guidance in energy, materials and waste. We conduct research and demonstrate what’s possible. We inspire people to make sustainable change above and beyond legal requirements. We celebrate and promote people’s achievements and bring them together to make a greater collective difference for Victoria. We’re also responsible for planning and fostering a smarter statewide infrastructure system for delivering essential waste services across the state.
A sustainable, thriving Victoria
