ASI Submission to NSW Government’s future innovation green paper
ASI has made a submission to the NSW Government’s "Securing future innovation & global competitiveness in NSW Green Paper".
Consultation was sought on "on the forces driving substantial, rapid and ongoing change across the economy", to help the Government with industry policy reform in NSW over the next 10 to 15 years.
Key points in ASI's submission were:
- Transition to net zero emissions by 2050 is the single biggest challenge and opportunity for the steel industry over the next 20 years.
- All the major Australian steel producers have announced their intention to meet a net zero emissions by 2050 commitment, which is supported by comprehensive, published sustainability plans.
- The single most critical business operating environment constraint is the availability of skilled personnel to fill industry wide vacancies.
- We believe the single most effective means of encouraging local industry innovation and growth is for the NSW Government to set mandatory local participation targets for major projects.
