With cars like the i-MiEV leading the way, Mitsubishi is continuing to engage in developing products and practices that provide for a sustainable future. As the first, and currently only, electric passenger car from a mainstream manufacturer available on the Australian market, the i-MiEV is playing a vital role in Mitsubishi's vision of a sustainable future for personal transport with the company aiming for electric vehicles to account for at least 20 per cent of its global production by 2020.

Luke Taylor, the festival director sees the increasing popularity of the festival, which combines practical solutions, concepts, education and entertainment, as a sign that everyday Australians are keen to grapple with today's environmental challenges.

And judging by the stalls that make up the ever-popular Green Market, there are plenty of changes that can be made with over 100 exhibitors showcasing sustainable products and services from all sectors of industry including building, energy, water, and food.
