The Million Jobs Plan

Beyond Zero Emissions (BZE) is an internationally recognised climate change think tank, providing independent and ambitious climate change solutions for Australia.

Official Launch

On Monday 29 June 2020 ‘The Million Jobs Plan’ and the framework for creating employment and helping to restore our economy, was officially released by BZE.

The comprehensive plan for over a million jobs, maps out how we can rebuild Australia using a range of practical projects that can restore our economy, modernise our industry and infrastructure, reskill our workforce, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and deliver a bright and secure economic future.

The plan identifies seven key sectors where strategic investment over the next five years would have the most impact and create the most jobs, including:

  1. Energy
  2. Building
  3. Manufacturing
  4. Transport
  5. Recycling
  6. Land Use
  7. Training
