Tasmania and the UN Sustainable Development Goals


Transformative thinking to help the world reduce its carbon footprint

Proudly leading the world to a better future

Tasmanian inventiveness has made us global leaders


Tasmania is already at Net Zero, an enviable global position. But we’re aiming higher to decarbonise here at home while delivering the critical minerals needed, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, for greener technologies across the world.


Tasmania has a history of invention and reinvention sustainably producing high quality, world leading, niche products. We account for over 64% of Tasmania’s exports and growing rapidly, using smarter innovations and approaches to deliver to the world’s rapidly changing needs.


Our industries cover a diverse range of products and services – directly employing 25,800 Tasmanians and needing 20,000 more from all walks of life by 2040. Diversity in all its forms is key to sharing prosperity, building stronger communities and sparking fresh ideas.


There are thousands of jobs to be filled.

Cobots are changing how we work

A “cobot” is a shortened term for “collaborative robot,” also known as a “cooperative robot” or “cobotic system.” These robots are designed to work alongside humans in a shared workspace or environment, allowing for human-robot collaboration. The range of automation uses are huge across heavy industry, through to boutique manufacturers and even hospitality!

February is Cobot Month with events across the state. Book a Demo for your business!

Cleaner, Smarter, Diverse

How are we getting there?
