Victorian business owners called on to contribute to circular economy research

Have your say in the state's circular transition.


Do you own or manage a business in Victoria? The state government wants you to share your experiences and opinions on the circular economy in a survey.

The circular transition is well underway in Victoria — the state has announced plans to establish a circular economy, but lacks the data needed to properly harness this opportunity. This research aims to map the circular economy landscape in Victoria and identify enablers and barriers to change. Survey responses will help form the basis of a research project titled 'Climate for transitioning to a circular economy'.

The research is being undertaken as part of the RMIT University, Circular Economy Victoria, Swinburne University of Technology, and Planet Ark Environmental Foundation project to create the Victorian Circular Activator (VCA), funded by Sustainability Victoria. The VCA is a physical innovation hub activating the circular economy in Victoria through research and education programs.

The survey is designed to help the Victorian government gain a deeper understanding business and industry practices and takes 15 minutes to complete. Victorian business owners and managers can have their say here by completing this survey.
