The science of sustainability

Last updated: 7 September 2022

At SV, we invest in new ideas for a new Victoria.

We’re on the cusp of a recycling boom, and we’re making sure Victoria’s prepared as we imagine our future without waste and embrace the possibilities of a recycled world.

We invest in the best and brightest brains – scientists, engineers and manufacturers – to explore how we can build the recycling system of the future. We partner with some of Australia’s leading universities to fast-track innovation in recycled materials, supporting the research and development essential for getting these ideas out of the lab and into the real world.

But only with the right recycling infrastructure can we can turn ideas into impact. So, we partner with industry to invest in the latest technology, create jobs and build new recycling facilities, to ensure we can process and use more recycled content locally.

It’s all part of reshaping Victoria’s circular economy around a future built on recycled materials, and ensuring our state achieves its ambitious target to divert 80% of waste from landfill by 2030.
