According to the Green Building Council of Australia, at least a quarter of a building’s emissions over its lifetime are locked in upfront, before the occupants even walk through the front doors. Given the advancements made in decarbonising the electricity grid and increasingly stringent energy efficiency standards, upfront carbon will soon take up the majority of the building sector’s total emissions. Industry stakeholders are calling for practitioners to help lead the delivery of a more sustainable built environment by meeting increasingly stringent upfront carbon reduction targets.
