Exploring Victoria's Circular Economy Policy issue paper

In July 2019, the Victorian government (Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning DELWP) had released an issues paper on a Circular Economy for Victoria. It had been opened up for feedback to help the Victorian Government to understand the benefits and limitations of a circular economy in Victoria and determine which areas to prioritise for further work.

CEV hosted an event on to get input from the community and consolidated the answers to send out to DELWP. 

From the feedback, DELWP has developed the final policy.
