Creating sustainable cities requires rethinking the built environment, a fundamental component of mitigating the environmental impacts of buildings. To evaluate this, stakeholders in Australia increasingly rely on third party verification via green building rating schemes.

As a signatory to the Paris Climate Change Agreement, Australia has committed to reaching net zero emissions by around 2050. Australia’s built environment contributes almost a quarter of Australia’s emissions, offering a significant opportunity for emissions reduction.

Through the National Energy Productivity Plan (NEPP), the COAG Energy Council will prioritise improving consumer information and decision making tools, the removal of market barriers to new technologies and services, and supporting wider innovation and competition within industry and energy market. This will support more productive consumer choice from a range of better energy services.

This paper outlines and critically ‘maps’ existing roadmaps relevant to transitions to a low or zero carbon built environment in Australia. A roadmap describes the measures required to achieve goals and/or map future innovation opportunities. The three questions addressed by a comprehensive roadmap are: Where do we want to go?, Where are we now?, and How can we get there?

Briefing paper

The Malaysian building sector approximately consumes 53% of national electricity generated, and emits 5,301 ktons of greenhouse gases (GHG) with an annual growth rate of 6.4%. While voluntary codes of practice for energy efficiency and use or renewable energy exist for non-residential buildings, Malaysia has yet to adopt mandatory energy efficiency legislation for its building sector.

Conference paper

The building sector has been identified as a sector with large potential for delivering energy savings and mitigation of GHG emissions. Yet it has been unclear what the specific role of building energy efficiency codes play in achieving these savings.

Buildings are key to low-carbon development everywhere, and many countries have introduced building energy codes to improve energy efficiency in buildings. Yet, building energy codes can only deliver results when the codes are implemented. For this reason, studies of building energy codes need to consider implementation of building energy codes in a consistent and comprehensive way.
