Introduction

Sustainable Australia Party is an independent community movement from the political centre, with a positive plan for an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable Australia. We support a science and evidence-based approach to policy - not a left or right wing ideology.

SAP is campaigning to:

  • Protect our environment
  • Stop overdevelopment
  • Stop corruption

And much more...

See our broad policy platform, including policies to deliver affordable housing, efficient public transport and a more diverse economy.

Importantly, SAP is the only political party to challenge the the folly of unlimited growth in both resource consumption and population. We advocate for a sustainable Australia that is Better, not bigger.
