The Sustainable Economy Program aims to identify options for Australia to make a rapid transition to an environmentally and socially sustainable economy. Australia has tremendous opportunity to leverage its abundant natural resources and skills in innovation to build a fair, sustainable and prosperous economy – one that provides a secure future for all Australians. Yet to do so, we need to get the policy settings right.
The Sustainable Economy Program is underpinned by an understanding of the problems caused by systemic short-termism in both the public and private sectors, and by the failure to value public goods which are hard to measure or monetise. It seeks to highlight the importance of ‘valuing what matters’ and of properly considering the long-term drivers of risk, prosperity and wellbeing.
