UQ-ALABC Latin American Sustainability Symposium




Partners: IBF, Orica, Embassy of Peru, BHP Foundation, South Pole, MMG, Geovia Dassault Systemes, CSIRO and Santos

Impact: With the year 2020 th the year 2020 drawing to a close, the achievement of the United Nations (UN) 2030 agenda is now more critical than ever. However, the only way to achieve this goal is by promoting greater international cooperation and collaboration related explicitly to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined in the agenda.

While Australia and Latin America (LATAM) are on distinct sides of the globe, continents away from each other, the partnership and knowledge sharing between these two regions in areas of sustainability create cross-border learnings that have a positive impact on both regions as well as the world as a whole. While the achievement of all SGDs is essential in order to achieve a sustainable future for all, this policy brief will focus on the following three SDGs which have a particular strong link between industry and sustainability 

  • SDG 9 -“Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation, and foster innovation”
  • SDG 12 – “Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns”
  • SDG 17 – Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development
