A Carbon Positive Roadmap for the Built Environment - Discussion paper

We value your feedback!

On 6 March, at the Green Cities conference in Sydney, the GBCA launched a new discussion paper, A carbon positive roadmap for the built environment.

The discussion paper sets the scene, outlines potential priorities for the industry and asks for feedback as we work towards Australia’s climate targets, identify clear pathways to carbon neutrality and create new value for our members.

Discussion Paper

We seek written feedback on our proposed approach. You can provide feedback and submit directly from the discussion paper.

The consultation period is open from 6 March 2016. All feedback must be submitted by COB Friday 2 June 2017

Your feedback on the discussion paper is vital, and will help us refine and expand the roadmap before its release in late 2017.


On Tuesday 21 March, we held a free webinar to give an overview of the discussion paper and the proposed Carbon Positive Roadmap. Watch the recorded webinar. 

Feedback and contact

If you would like us to present our approach and to give feedback in person, we can arrange a briefing. Please email us
