Paolo Bevilacqua, Frasers property Australia’s general manager – real utilities and chair of the board of Living Future Institute Australia (LFIA), has joined the board of directors.

ILFI administers the Living Building Challenge –referred to by ILFI as the world’s most ambitious green building program – which is transforming the building sector through strategies such as zero energy, toxic-free materials, and onsite rainwater collection and use.

“The Institute is delighted to bring Paolo onto our Board,” says Amanda Sturgeon, CEO of ILFI.

“Paolo has been a tireless and passionate advocate for the Institute’s programs in the Australia Pacific region and will bring the ILFI board a strong vision for collaboration and partnership that will continue to grow our programs globally.”

“I am honored to be joining the Board of an organisation that has defined what good looks like for buildings, products and communities worldwide,” adds Bevilacqua.

“The ILFI programs are recognised as the most advanced and rigorous in the world. They are challenging, yet attainable when the right combination of talent, passion and intent is brought together.

“It is incredible to see leaders all around the world take on this challenge, including Frasers Property Australia’s very own retail team, which is developing the world's first Living Building shopping centre. I look forward to bringing my knowledge and experience with the LFIA and the Asia Pacific real estate market to help scale the ILFI programs even further.”
