Melbourne and Sydney are celebrating sustainable building practices with Green Building Day 2013.
The day builds on the success of the Green Building Council of Australia’s Green Star Day 2012.
The day will look at the future of the green building industry in Australia, the trends, predictions and the latest market insights and industry opportunities.
Highlights of the days will include findings from the Green Building Council of Australia’s first quantitative research into the impact of Green Star on the built environment over the past decade including a talk from Green Star Director of Operations Orjan Lundberg about how many thousands of cars Green Star certified buildings have taken off the roads, millions of litres of drinking water they’ve saved and thousands of truckloads of waste they’ve diverted from landfill.
Bruce Precious of the GPT Group will present on the CSIRO’s predictions on the six megatrends that will impact the sustainable building industry over the next 20 years.
Representatives from some of Australia’s most successful green building project teams will take questions on the road to 6 Star Green Star success and share their tips on everything from engaging, to troubleshooting, to managing expectations.
There will also be a networking session, allowing participants to mingle with the Green Star team and share ideas on the future of Australia’s sustainability rating system.
Green Building Day will be in Sydney on Wednesday, May 29 and Melbourne on Friday, June 7.
