Circular economy practices that address waste prevention, reuse, re-manufacture and upcycling are key to tackling climate change. A Monash Business School research team is working with the South East Melbourne Manufacturers Alliance to support the adoption of circular economy practices in Victorian manufacturing. Funded by Sustainability Victoria and Monash Business School, the project aims to identify and develop practical approaches for manufacturing businesses to adopt these strategies and practices, addressing potential barriers and challenges along the way.

Monash urban design and data science researchers have joined a multi-year, cross institution, collaborative project that explores the social processes in resource development, using advanced geographic information systems and artificial intelligence remote sensing technologies to support social risk assessment. The research project is a joint initiative between Monash Indonesia and the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining at the University of Queensland, supported by multiple funding sources including the Ford Foundation and Google.

Researchers from Monash Law School were commissioned by the Minderoo Foundation to prepare a report on global plastic pollution regulation. The project, exploring mechanisms to protect human health to be incorporated into a plastics treaty, was timed for the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA-5.2) meeting to End Plastic Pollution. The research aimed to clarify current regulatory approaches to plastic production, consumption and its attendant pollution to people and the planet.
