Arden Precinct – towards a resilient, zero waste and circular precinct

Through the adoption of circular economy principles, a pioneering precinct-wide waste management plan has been developed for the Arden Precinct in the north of Melbourne, Australia. This 44.6-hectare development will accommodate 34,000 jobs and 15,000 residents. It aspires to set the standard for best practice in sustainable urban renewal, aiming to become Melbourne’s first circular and toward zero waste precinct, in line with net-zero carbon emissions targets by 2040.
