Introduction to SAP
Sustainable Australia Party is an independent community movement with a science and evidence-based policy platform.
We are fighting to:
- Protect our environment
- Stop overdevelopment
- Stop corruption
• Protecting endangered species habitats, native forests and local tree canopies • Reduce Australia’s waste production • Action on climate change • Stopping inappropriate high-rise and sprawl • Delivering new community infrastructure before more housing • Stabilising Australia’s population size • Transparent reporting of political donations and lobbying • Banning political donations from big business and unions
We have more sustainable solutions in our policy platform to address Australia’s growing economic, environmental and social problems including the housing affordability crisis, overcrowded public transport, road congestion, high immigration-fuelled rapid population growth, political and property developer corruption, privatisation of key public assets, economic de-industrialisation, foreign ownership, problem gambling, an underfunded arts sector and ageism.
In line with our science and evidence-based approach to policy, Sustainable Australia Party is #RedefiningGrowth to mean better, not bigger.
Importantly, Sustainable Australia Party is the only political movement to challenge the reckless political agenda of rapid growth in both resource consumption (e.g. water, energy, forests, fish stocks, etc) and population size. Instead, we prioritise growth in our health and wellbeing over business-as-usual growth in consumption and population.
Why? Australia's growing resource consumption and population size are the twin drivers of our growing environmental problems, according to our major scientific reports including the State of the Environment Report.
