Unlike other groups within Australia, the SBA’s membership is not drawn from a single industry or niche. Instead, Sustainable Business Australia has members from all walks of life, including banking, construction, forestry, water and soil conservation, infrastructure development, engineering and many others. SBA focuses on all areas of the economy and believes that providing commercially viable solutions to ecological challenges, sustainable growth can be achieved throughout.
Sustainable Business Australia is well known for their national advocacy group, which provides vital consulting and information to a very wide range of businesses and industries. The group includes preeminent experts from a range of sectors, including those from the world of finance, from ecology, science and the world of business. By providing advocacy and consulting, the SBA is able to help form policy to offer the best sustainability.
Key achievements by SBA include recognition of the fact that what happens to the environment also happens to the economy, as well as that a degraded environment has a negative impact on all segments of life and the economy. In addition, SBA has been instrumental in the drive toward reporting greenhouse emissions and curtailing practices responsible for those emissions.
Members of Sustainable Business Australia enjoy a range of benefits, including being on the forefront of policy formation regarding environmental and economic policy. In addition, members are able to stay abreast of current changes within the environmental services industry and how those changes affect the world.
