Future Proofing Geelong Partners

These organisations were signatories to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which outlined a commitment to work together to future proof Geelong.

There has been a growth in sustainability capabilities across the region since Future Proofing Geelong's inception.  In 2020, the Future Proofing Geelong partners agreed it was time to dissolve the partnership, in light of a number of collaborations which now exist to address sustainability. 

Signatories provided a key role in promoting Future Proofing Geelong, informing priorities and demonstrating leadership.

The partnership was about delivering collaborative projects that achieved the six key objectives of the MOU:

  • enhance relationships between local government, state government, community and industry to advance the sustainability of the Geelong region through collaborative partnerships
  • engage local industry and community to help implement actions identified in specific sustainability areas, such as the Low Carbon Growth Plan for Geelong
  • attract investment and jobs in cleaner technology to the Geelong region
  • support Geelong to become a leader in integrating sustainability considerations into key organisational operations
  • develop Geelong as a leading model of a community transitioning to a low carbon economy
  • promote “Future Proofing Geelong” as the primary aggregation brand for sustainability initiatives in Geelong, which are aligned to the Low Carbon Growth Plan.
