The built environment must lead ecological and biodiversity outcomes that create ongoing value for people, places and the natural environment. We continue to deliver reports that reaffirm the role of nature and biodiversity in the built environment and shape practical guidance that can be adopted by industry.
We want to ensure that industry is supported in making good choices for nature management so that we can work together to restore and regenerate nature and biodiversity, and reduce our future impacts.
In 2018, GBCA developed the report, Building with Nature: Prioritising ecology and biodiversity for better buildings and cities which outlined the role of biodiversity and ecological value in the built environment and proposed significant changes to Green Star as part of the Green Star Future Focus review.
We have now released the second paper in this series, Building with Nature 2.0 which consolidates the latest science and global trends, research, policies, and views from industry.
Next, we are creating a Nature Roadmap for the Built Environment, that will guide industry, helping it to make new choices for nature management, safeguarding nature for future generations. We look forward to sharing this with you in 2024.Download the report
