The Responsible Consumption Mission, led by BehaviourWorks Australia in the Monash Sustainable Development Institute with partners, explores how systemic behavioural public policy experiments, that support 'responsible consumption', could have a substantial impact on reducing Australia's material-footprint.

In 2022, BehaviourWorks Australia worked with consortium partners Sustainability Victoria, Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (Vic), the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water, and Environment, and The Shannon Company on the key policy goal of increasing the extent of buying, swapping and selling secondhand clothes. Engaging with over 100 stakeholders across three tiers of government, charities, NGOs, and consumer brands, the Consortium co-designed a range of ideas to help encourage these behaviours.
