Own it and Act strategic framework

This framework forms the basis of future strategic litter grant programs.

The Own it and Act framework recognises that litter prevention is not merely an individual’s responsibility. Best practice requires organisations to embed litter prevention principles, policies and practices into business-as-usual operations. It also requires networks and collaboration to build supportive conditions for litter prevention across sectors to ensure litter prevention and anti-litter behaviour is sustained for the long term.

This framework will help you identify where litter prevention sits within your organisation. It will help build a clear idea about what you can do (capacity), and what is your value-add – where you envisage your involvement in litter prevention in the future. It will help identify how you can work as independently as possible in partnership with us to achieve your litter prevention goals and long-term state targets to protect our environment and communities from the harm caused by litter.
