Released world-first research showing the economic benefits of restoring Victoria’s environment

The Future Economy Group sponsored world-first research to quantify the impact on our economy of continuing to exploit our natural environment and vice versa.

The research, undertaken by The Nous Group, found that Victoria could create an extra 200,000 jobs and $36 billion in gross state product by adopting a model of economic development that restores our natural capital. Conversely if we continue to damage our natural environment it will have dire impacts on the economy.
