There are a significant number of business and industry organisations that have a major stake in the management of the natural resources in the Region. The prosperity of industries such as agriculture, fisheries, forestry and tourism are highly dependent on the condition and availability of natural resources.
To create a sustainable balance between business, industry and the natural environment, the Strategy advocates for new partnerships and innovative approaches. For Perth to be an eco-city, a triple bottom line approach is needed, that values and seeks to enhance the prosperity of the economy in the Region. The private sector can be visionary leaders of change and drive sustainability through private investment, operating procedures, codes of practice and accreditation systems. Public – private partnerships can also deliver significant natural resource management outcomes.
