Bid Description:

This CRC aims to accelerate Australia’s transformation to a green economy. It will develop the ecosystem needed for economic growth, and create products and services to support Australia’s transformation towards net zero.

The CRC will develop digital, artificially intelligent and other innovations, grow and improve policies and financial markets, and train innovation leaders. It will enable industries to harness low emission technologies, natural capital (such as biodiversity, water, soil and ecosystem services) and financial frameworks, and turn these into profitable and transparent value chains.

Partners will benefit from low-risk, shared-cost proof-of-innovation concepts, which will be opportunities to massively improve competitiveness in the global marketplace.

This CRC will also achieve a social good – a “just” transition to a sustainable future – by taking a whole-systems perspective, and only developing solutions that fit in a circular economy.
