Background

'Sustainable Manufacturing Solutions' is an initiative of the Victorian Centre for Sustainable Chemical Manufacturing (VCSCM), a consortium of academic, government and industry organisations including the Victorian Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR), Monash University, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), the Plastics and Chemicals Industry Association (PACIA) and the Environment Protection Authority (EPA Victoria). It has been running since it was officially launched by the then Minister, on 26 July 2013.

VCSCM works with businesses to address their needs, solve problems where possible, and assist the uptake of new methods and materials. By focusing on a whole-of-life-cycle/whole-of-supply-chain approach, VCSCM provides manufacturers with the capacity and capability to innovate, to acquire new skills and improve their competitiveness, productivity and environmental performance.
