Social and Environmental Sustainability Action Plan
In our Social and Environmental Sustainability Action Plan 2020-24, TAFE Queensland outlines its goals, strategies and actions towards achieving our commitment to sustainability.
TAFE Queensland Social and Environmental Sustainability Action Plan 2020-2024
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all 193 Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Australia, as a member state, endorsed this roadmap for global development efforts to 2030 and beyond.
Through this global partnership, every person is empowered to take care of the planet through changing habits and making choices that have less harmful effects on the environment. Every person is challenged to find strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and promote economic growth in a bid to ending poverty.
About our plan
In the Social and Environmental Sustainability Action Plan 2020-24, TAFE Queensland outlines its goals, strategies and actions towards achieving our commitment to sustainability.
At TAFE Queensland we believe that vocational education and training has a key role to play in the achievement of the Global Goals and to make sure we leave a better planet for future generations.
Our staff, students and the community will work together to implement this plan.
TAFE Queensland is pleased to present the TAFE Queensland Sustainability Snapshot 2020-2022, outlining our key achievements to date, in making sure we leave a better planet for future generations.
Social and Environmental Sustainability Committee
We have established the TAFE Queensland Social and Environmental Sustainability Committee to:

- Identify and discuss matters for areas of improvement in sustainable practices,
- Provide a regular forum for the exchange of ideas, opinions and information, and

Membership of the committee is currently made up of staff from across the state.
