Policy Asks: COVID-19, Free Trade and Sustainability


The Business Council for Sustainable Development Australia (BCSD Australia) is the national peak body representing forward-thinking companies and organisations that are working towards the transition to a sustainable Australia. Our mission is to accelerate this transition by making sustainable business more successful.

We are the Australian partner of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). Previously known as Sustainable Business Australia, our members come from all sectors and industries, representing more than 150,000 employees across Australia.


Our members believe that by integrating social and environmental impacts with financial results, business lowers its risk profile, makes better decisions and creates the solutions needed to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.

Our members come from all sectors, including business, industry, finance, education, public and philanthropic.  This cross-sectoral membership allows us to truly drive systemic transformation, debate and action.


BCSD Australia creates the business case for sustainability through the development of tools, research and business models. These scalable science-based solutions deliver measurable impact and enable our members to engage at the highest level, influencing the agenda as well as demonstrating leadership.
