May 8, 2024

The world’s clean technology future can be made in Australia

$215 billion in cumulative revenue and up to 53,000 additional ongoing jobs by 2035

Could be created if Australia takes bold action to boost Australian manufacturing capabilities and grow five onshore cleantech supply chains.
