The property sector, including both residential and commercial buildings, accounts for around a quarter of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions and is a massive consumer of energy, water and materials. To limit global warming to less than two degrees celsius, industry experts have suggested that all buildings must be “net-zero carbon” by 2050. Meeting this goal will require a radical change in the way that buildings are constructed and operated. At the same time, our changing climate will need buildings and communities to be more resilient and adaptable than ever before.
