Together, building and construction are responsible for 39% of all carbon emissions in the world. Australia has signed to the Paris Agreement, committing to keep global warming to 1.5C – 2 C. It is safe to say, the construction industry is going to change significantly in order to meet these targets. The Green Building Council of Australia is the organisation that is showing us the way to move forward to achieve these goals. Today we are lucky to be speaking to Davina Rooney, the CEO of the Green Building Council of Australia about:

  • What opportunities are presented by COVID-19 for bouncing back better

  • The case for zero carbon pledge from an organisation’s point of view

  • Recent initiatives from the GBCA

Green Building Day on the 16th of June 2020 is one of the GBCA’s main event for the year, this year looking at how we can drive change in construction. You can sign up to the event here:
