We commend the Victorian Government’s commitment to develop a circular economy policy and action plan by 2020.
This is a crucial opportunity for Victoria to stimulate new industries, capitalising on our strengths in research and development, following cradle-to-cradle principles for the design and manufacture of products.
Developing a circular economy strategy also allows Victoria to address the severe and irreversible impacts of the current linear approach to resource use on our natural environment and to start reducing greenhouse gas emissions from multiple sectors of the economy.
Our submission contains our feedback on points raised in the Circular Economy Issues Paper, together with the findings of our own research and quantitative results from a survey of our supporters specifically seeking feedback on and contributions to the Victorian Government’s circular economy policy and action plan.
