Building a low carbon circular economy


The linear economic model of make-use-dispose is dependent on a range of finite resources and materials that generate significant waste. By transforming how we manage our resources, a low-carbon circular economy delivers a variety of benefits for the Region by optimising the whole value chain to design out waste, re-use and recycle materials, and regenerate natural systems.

Council's Sustainability Strategy’s strategic priority 'build a low-carbon circular economy' helps to focus attention on the actions necessary to work with our community, business, industry, and government to ensure our valuable natural resources are kept in circulation and position us to make the most of emerging industry opportunities for our region.
