Victorian Government’s circular economy discussion paper

RMIT University sustainability experts comment on Victorian Government’s circular economy discussion paper.

In a submission just made to the Victoria Government’s circular economy discussion paper, Professor Usha Iyer-Raniga and fellow RMIT University sustainability experts highlighted several ways they say it had “missed the point” and explored the important role SDGs can play in this context.
