Future Proofing Business and Industry

A key initiative of our work with business and industry is the establishment of Cleantech Innovations Geelong.

Developing clean technology

Clean Technologies are defined as economically viable products, services and processes that harness renewable materials and energy sources, dramatically reduce the use of natural resources and cut or eliminate emissions and wastes.

Cleantech Innovations is an alliance of business and industry looking to develop markets for clean technologies. The aim is to establish Geelong as a Centre of Excellence for cleantech in Australia, by attracting investment, creating jobs and building skills.

The program is a partnership funded through the Manufacturing Productivity Network (State Government), the Geelong Manufacturing Council and Future Proofing Geelong.
