The Advisory Group provides advice through the Minister for the Environment and Water on: - opportunities associated with Australia’s circular economy transition (nationally, and within specific sectors) - regulatory, commercial and other barriers to a more circular economy - best practice initiatives that show promise for adoption and/or expansion in Australia circular economy research, development and innovation needs - effective measurement and communication about progress towards Australia’s circular economy. The Advisory Group is taking an evidence-based approach to its advice, with recommendations grounded in research and consultation.
