Mainstreaming Sustainable Development (pdf): complete package setting out the Government’s vision for sustainable development and measures to support it. Published 28 February 2011.

The Coalition Government is committed to sustainable development. This means making the necessary decisions now to realise our vision of stimulating economic growth and tackling the deficit, maximising wellbeing and protecting our environment, without negatively impacting on the ability of future generations to do the same.

These are difficult times and tough decisions need to be made. This Government believes in going beyond the short term with eyes fixed firmly on a long term horizon shift in relation to our economy, our society and the environment.

The Government’s approach is to mainstream sustainable development so that it is central to the way we make policy, run our buildings and purchase goods and services.
