Mission Statement
The LVSG will endeavour to educate, guide and assist residents and businesses of the Greater Latrobe Valley region
in attaining a community with economic growth and a sustainable way of life for now and into the future.

Who are we?
The Latrobe Valley Sustainability Group is a grass roots citizens’ group dedicated to encouraging the acceptance and understanding of the principles of Sustainability by the wider community.

We use as our focus the idea that human induced climate change affects the whole planet, but solutions to it are only to be found when all of Earth’s citizens take responsibility at a local level for how they use resources.

We believe that the transition from fossil fuel based energy to energy derived from renewable sources is a matter of urgency. We are aware that if greenhouse gases are allowed to increase, modern society will not be able to continue with the quality of life we enjoy at the present. Alternative, sustainable and renewable means of producing our energy and material needs must be developed as a matter of urgency.
