Kingspan Insulation partnered with the Green Building Council of Australia and the Property Council of Australia for Green Cities, a unique sustainability event held annually to drive change in the built environment. Green Cities brings together thought leaders, industry experts and individuals, and promotes sustainability initiatives in Australia.
As a proud partner of the Green Cities event, Kingspan sponsored the site visit to the University of Melbourne, the first Australian university to achieve a 6 Star Green Star - Communities rating. Site visits form an integral part of the Green Cities experience.
The campus incorporates diverse sustainable infrastructure features including Kingspan’s super high performance Kooltherm phenolic insulation boards that drive energy efficiency in some of the recent marquee buildings.
The University of Melbourne has committed to net zero carbon emissions from electricity by 2021 and complete carbon neutrality before 2030. Also aiming for 100% net zero energy by 2020 globally, Kingspan truly supports the initiatives presented at Green Cities.
