Australia’s natural resources are an integral part of the Australian economy. The development and production of our natural resources must be conducted in an environmentally sustainable, socially responsible and economic manner.
Population growth, increasing demand for natural resources, rising costs and community expectations place a confluence of pressures to manage natural resources, and on the water industry to develop innovative and more efficient processes.
Australia's energy future
ATSE commends the Northern Territory's Government for listening to experts, and we welcome their lifting of the moratorium on fracking.
Australia’s pipeline of mining projects is at risk unless industry, government and the research community cooperate on mineral exploration
Investment in low-impact, cost-effective technologies will assist in addressing the urgent need to increase the success rate of discovering new Australian mineral deposits in increasingly challenging geological, environmental and social conditions
The risks associated with shale gas development can be managed through evidence based site-specific risk assessment and mitigation
The 2018 South Australian election provides an opportunity for inspirational policy vision that will ensure the State remains a leader in both society and the economy
Digital technology is profoundly revolutionising the structure of our lives
Australia’s mining sector urgently need to address its legacy and ongoing environmental impacts
Climate change mitigation and adaptation: managing our climate and society
ATSE says our mitigation target must be
an effective response to climate science
and a fair share of the global burden
ATSE strongly supports emissions reductions across all sectors while taking steps to balance the economic impacts of this transition.
The governments of Australia should develop, and commit to, a new decadal strategy for national water reform that will ensure secure, sustainable, and equitable water supplies for Australian communities, industries and the environment
A whole-of-system approach with a focus on long-term
water sustainability targets is essential to improve the sustainability of Australia’s agricultural and
water ecosystems in the face of climate change and increasing competition for water
Existing water services and planning processes in the majority of cities in the world are poorly equipped to support projected population growth and slow to respond to economic uncertainties
To remain internationally competitive, Australia’s mineral resources sector must achieve world class productivity through enhanced collaboration, improved support for development and demonstration of more efficient technologies
The ATSE Tasmanian Division, with the Royal Society of Tasmania, held a public lecture in Hobart on 9 November where CSIRO oceanographer Dr Stephen Rintoul delivered a thought-provoking address titled Hunting for Climate Clues in the Southern Ocean
Green Growth in Australia examined the linkages within - and potential of - sustainable resources management to enable environmentally responsible economic growth
This report examines the potential industry opportunities for wastewater resource recovery in Australia and highlights key learnings from initiatives elsewhere
Australian mineral resource exploration and development can only deliver positive economic and community benefits, and decrease environmental impacts, if it remains efficient and sustainable through ongoing investment in technological innovation
Australia needs to link stormwater management strongly to urban planning processes to maximise the wider benefits of green stormwater infrastructure and technologies to Australian communities
