Circular economy

One of the biggest barriers to sustainability lies in the current linear 'take-make-dispose' economic model.

In order to reach a vision by 2050 in which not a particle is truly wasted, eco-efficiency of materials must improve by a factor of 10. This target was previously referenced by the Factor10 Institute in 1994 when they called for the ten-fold improvement in resource efficiency.

This work group brings companies together to reinvent how business finds, uses and disposes of the materials that make up Australian and global trade.

It’s a platform that seeks to identify and remove the barriers that exist and create scalable solutions that businesses in Australia can use.
