Reimagining markets to create a better future for all consumers.
At CPRC we’re committed to doing things differently through our research. We listen to the expectations, hopes and experiences of consumers around Victoria and Australia. We amplify the bright ideas of consumers, leading thinkers, and bold advocates. We analyse public policy and business practices to identify the gaps, the leading practices, and opportunities for change.
Most importantly, we facilitate conversations that matter to build a stronger shared understanding across government, industry and the community sector about ways to improve the lives and welfare of consumers.
