Introduction to SAP

Sustainable Australia Party is an independent community movement with a science and evidence-based approach to policy - not a left or right wing ideology.

Sustainable Australia Party has developed a broad policy platform to address Australia's growing economic, environmental and social problems.

For starters, Sustainable Australia Party is campaigning to:

  • Protect our environment
  • Stop overdevelopment
  • Stop corruption

There's much more in our policy platform, including policies to deliver affordable housing, efficient public transport and a more diverse and self-sufficient economy.

Redefining growth

Importantly, Sustainable Australia Party is the only political party to challenge the folly of unlimited growth in both resource consumption and population - the twin drivers of Australia's growing environmental problems according to our major scientific reports.

Sustainable Australia Party prioritises growth in health and wellbeing - including growth in the health of our environment, education standards, job opportunities, housing affordability and democracy - over so-called 'economic growth' as measured by the crude economic statistic known as 'aggregate GDP'.

The current aggregate GDP 'growth' agenda is driven by greed and the related corruption of Australia's political system by vested interests - and is lowering Australia’s per capita living standards.

Sustainable Australia Party is redefining growth to mean better, not bigger.


As an independent community movement, after you Vote 1 for Sustainable Australia Party for (say) the Senate, we ask that you decide where to direct your own preferences. See 'Preferences' under 'Get involved' in our website menu.

“It used to be easy to deliver infrastructure when the government owned the land, but because our major cities are already planned and built up, there is no room to retro-fit new infrastructure without expensive additions like land buy-backs and tunnelling,” said William Bourke, President of Sustainable Australia Party.
