While our understanding of the factors deteriorating our environmental resources has improved, much is left to explore about the potential pathways to achieve sustainable growth and harness new industry and job creation opportunities – particularly in Western Australia.

This special report seeks to fill this knowledge gap by taking stock of the current environmental footprint and development of ‘green’ sectors and practices as well as identifying opportunities to grow a sustainable and diverse West Australian economy.
