For the past ten years, the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) has transformed Australia’s cities by promoting innovation in the design and delivery of sustainable buildings.

Over the past three years, the GBCA has extended beyond the building and developed a new rating tool that seeks to transform the way that communities of the future are developed. The Green Star - Communities Rating Tool has been a collaboration between the GBCA, Australia's largest private sector development companies, all of the Government land development organisations in Australia, the Commonwealth Department of Infrastructure and Transport (Major Cities Unit), Local Government and numerous planning and design professionals, academia and industry.  It is truly unique in its process and outcome.

The Brisbane Development Association is proud to host Adam Beck of the GBCA who will provide a preview of this soon-to-be-released rating tool. Adam will provide an overview of the rating tool, highlighting how it aims to lift the sustainability of development across our cities and communities, and more specifically, what this means for Brisbane.

Following the presentation, panellists will join Adam to share their thoughts on how the tool will promote sustainable outcomes in the development of future communities.  Cate Harris, Australian Head of Sustainability for Lend Lease will provide an industry perspective, and Malcolm Middleton will share his thoughts as the Queensland State Government Architect.
