The Natural Edge Project (TNEP) was a collaborative partnership for research, education, policy development, and strategy for sustainable development, spanning 2002 – 2015.

Our project was driven by a team of early career Australians who receive mentoring and support from a number of experts and leading organisations around the world. After being incubated by The Institution of Engineers Australia, the project was hosted in various Australian cities, with team members located in Griffith University, Adelaide University, QUT, and Curtin University. We thank QUT for continuing to host this legacy site.

Our group’s mission was to contribute to, and succinctly communicate, leading research, case studies, tools and strategies for achieving sustainable development across government, business and civil society.

Imagine… if organisations could improve their performance while being planetary caretakers…

Imagine… if national economies could grow and prosper while contributing positively to society and the environment…

TNEP was about working towards making these possibilities a reality – using lessons from the last 30 years to ensure the next 30 make our children proud.
