There is growing recognition internationally and within Australia of the need to reduce carbon emissions and implement sustainable development principles, and to establish policy to achieve environmental sustainability. This study seeks to enhance understanding of how households think about and act on the issues of waste, water and energy use and conservation, and of how positive change in household behaviour in these areas can be effected.
