Objectives & Core Values

Sustainable Australia Party policies represent our objectives and core values in action.

Sustainable Australia Party aims to secure an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable Australia.

1. Sustainability

Australia should progress economically and socially using resources in ecologically sustainable ways to protect the environment and the natural world. The aim is wellbeing for all Australians, present and future, and to preserve the biodiversity of our ecosystems, with enough space and resources to live well and in balance with each other. Sustainability and environmental impacts involve the contribution of population numbers, per capita consumption and technology.

2. Transparent Democracy

We are committed to inclusive, honest and transparent governance that prioritises the broader public interest, integrity and stopping corruption. All individuals should have equal opportunity to take part in the democratic process. Public policy should be based on objective evidence-based advice in light of wider social, environmental, economic and national security concerns.

3. Productive Innovation

We encourage innovation and sustainable development. In economic, environmental, social and cultural fields we advocate renewed investment in education and training, scientific research and entrepreneurship. The objective is a skilled, productive, creative and more self-sufficient nation, allowing all Australians to fulfil their potential.

4. Global Vision

Through partnership, example and assistance, Australia should help other nations to develop sustainably and meet the human rights of all citizens.

What is real sustainability?

Sustainability means meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. This requires us to operate our society and economy within safe environmental limits.
