Central Coast Sustainability Cluster

Central Coast Industry Connect (CCIC) works with a range of industry sectors, government at all levels and service providers to bring about environmental sustainable practices in manufacturing, construction and other local industries.

CCIC has partnered with the Office of Environment and Heritage to establish the cluster.

Cluster Information

The Central Coast Sustainability Cluster (CCSC) is a group led by Central Coast-based members of the Sustainability Advantage program, that works together to foster collaboration and improve region-wide best practice approaches to sustainability and environmental aspects and impacts across the region. It is widely understood by the group that collaboration and cooperation on economic, social and environmental aspects is important and needed for the Central Coast region, and as a cluster of businesses we can accelerate these economic, social and environmental improvements for the communities we operate.

Goals

  • Share sustainability best practice approaches around the region, including hearing from external experts, sharing case studies and experiences of members, knowledge and idea sharing.
  • Facilitate networking among sustainability professionals and sustainability-minded professionals in the region.
  • Collaboration for common needs and issues, which can include projects, funding, training, region-specific tools, campaigns.
  • Provide economic, social and environmental benefit to the communities on the Central Coast in which we operate.
