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 for greener technologies across the world.


Tasmania is responsibly 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. We need 20,000 more from all walks of life by 2040. Diversity in all its forms helps to share prosperity, build stronger communities and spark fresh ideas.
