The Million Jobs Plan
THE MILLION JOBS PLAN
Beyond Zero Emissions is proud to release our Million Jobs Plan, the first stage in our project to find and deliver one million new, good, secure, well-paying jobs, to help rebuild our economy after the disruption of the coronavirus pandemic and secure a strong future for all Australians.
Watch the video below to hear BZE Chairperson, Eytan Lenko, share what The Million Jobs Plan means for Australia.
The Million Jobs Plan is the framework to restore our economy. We’ve mapped out how we can rebuild our nation through practical projects that can restore our economy, modernise our industry, reskill our workforce and deliver a bright and secure economic future
We’ve identified seven key sectors across our economy where strategic investment over the next five years would have the most impact and create the most jobs, including
- Land Use
Jobs will be distributed around Australia, including in cities and regions already under pressure from the closure of traditional heavy industry and manufacturing, historical droughts and fires, and high unemployment.
The next stage of this project will include shortlisting of several priority projects across Australia that we will present to the government over the coming months, along with the private investors and partnerships needed to realise these projects, create good, secure jobs and kick our economy back into gear.
The Million Jobs Plan was developed by expert researchers at BZE, in collaboration with communities across Australia and an advisory committee made up of world-leading experts in economics, business, technology and climate science including:
On June 29 2020 Beyond Zero Emissions launched The Million Jobs Plan. The launch included a stellar line up including Christiana Figueres and Mike Cannon-Brookes. You can watch the webinar launch here.

BEYOND ZERO EMISSIONS
Beyond Zero Emissions (BZE) is an internationally recognised climate change think tank, providing independent and ambitious climate change solutions for Australia.
Our flagship research shows how all sectors of the Australian economy can decarbonise, repower and benefit from the transition to zero emissions. These Zero Carbon Australia plans cover renewable energy and electricity; energy efficient buildings; sustainable transport; agriculture, farming and land use; and industry.
Through volunteer-powered research we show that a thriving, zero emissions society is achievable and affordable now, and that Australia can become a renewable energy superpower.
