Established by trailblazers of the Australian environment movement in 1972, Total Environment Centre has worked with Australian communities on more than 100 victorious campaigns - defending parks and bushland in rural and urban areas, driving debate, advocating for pure air and water, supporting positive change in business and industry, and encouraging better environmental policy.
Our key achievements from over 100 wins include:
the battle for a container deposit scheme
of pristine forest saved from destruction
supporting energy efficiency and combating climate change
dozens of urban green spaces
Fate of Key Koala Corridor at Stake
New development in and around the Warragamba township is threatening an important Koala colony, as it fragments and degrades their habitat. Local community concern is growing, and Total Environment Centre is calling for a halt to current and future planned clearing, so that protection of this endangered species can be put in place.
2023 Sydney Basin Koala Campaign
With an over 20% decline of koala population in the Sydney bioregion in the last 20 years, our 5-point Sydney Basin Koala policy outlines the steps needed to halt their trajectory from endangered to extinct. The Sydney Basin Koala Policy is based on the best science and is intended to close the litany of loopholes in the law governing development, that is pushing the Koala towards extinction.
Total Environment Centre takes action to conserve our ecosystems, protect our biodiversity and fight pollution - for a brighter greener future.

With the best renewable energy resources in the world, Australia should be a global leader in the fight against global heating. Instead we are helping to trigger a climate catastrophe.
