Lead Victoria towards a truly circular economy

About the organisation
Sustainability Victoria (SV) supports Victorian communities in transitioning to a circular and climate resilient economy –¬ to deliver the State of the Future. SV is a statutory agency of the Victorian Government, governed by the Sustainability Victoria Act 2005 and the Environment Protection Act 1970.
Recycling Victoria – a New Economy will transform the waste and resource recovery sector in Victoria. This bold new policy will lead a change in Victorians’ behaviour and mindset from a culture of waste to a culture of respect for resources, leading organisations to adopt circular procurement, investing in new infrastructure and creating new jobs of the future.
As Sustainability Victoria realigns to deliver on this exciting new strategy, the organisation seeks to appoint six outstanding executive leaders – each with an entrepreneurial growth mindset of learning, continuous improvement, empowering teams and achievement.
