Project Lead (x2)

The vision of Sustainability Victoria is for a sustainable and thriving Victoria. One where practical and doable solutions combine to create a state which leads Australia in sustainable best practice and results.

Victoria has Australia's first state-wide waste infrastructure plan, which provides a 30-year vision and roadmap for how Victoria will meet our needs for essential waste services and prioritise resource recovery.

The Victorian government is also committed to leadership in climate change action. The Climate Change Framework, newly submitted legislation and a suite of energy efficiency and renewable energy policies set urgent action for our state to meet a zero-net carbon emission target for 2050.

We are all stakeholders in our own future and together, we can create a better Victoria for generations to come.
