All new buildings must be emissions-neutral by 2030 and all existing buildings by 2050 if Australia is to meet its climate change targets according to the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) with industry feedback encouraged, according to the Council.

Chief Executive Officer Romilly Madew says the GBCA is developing a new ‘Carbon Positive Roadmap’ in close consultation with industry to drive carbon positive buildings and communities.

The GBCA has launched a discussion paper at the Green Cities 2017 conference in Sydney.

The GBCA has outlined four key priorities for the initiative:

  1. promoting energy efficiency through passive design and efficient systems
  2. driving investment in resilient, renewable energy infrastructure
  3. increasing markets for net zero carbon products, materials and services
  4. promoting offsets for remaining emissions.
