BREAKING: SAP to contest March 2023 NSW election. More here.

Introduction to SAP

Sustainable Australia Party is an independent community movement with a science and evidence-based policy platform - 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, a sustainable population size and a more diverse and self-sufficient economy.

Redefining growth

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 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.

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.
