Sustainability Industry Reference Committee

On this page

The Sustainability IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications covering sustainable operations, environmental monitoring and technology, and competitive systems and practices. These qualifications focus on helping operations become more sustainable through improved productivity and efficiency and meeting their environmental responsibilities.

These qualifications are included in the MSS Sustainability Training Package.

The IRC will consult widely during any future training package development process, providing an opportunity for any interested parties to make a contribution.

Technical Advisory Committees may also be established to inform future work, utilising a broad range of stakeholders with technical and specific industry knowledge.

The Sustainability IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation IBSA Manufacturing. For more information visit IBSA Manufacturing.

Further information about the role of IRCs and how they operate can be found in the IRC Operating Framework.
