Following ongoing engagement with the Green Building Council, the Leader of the Federal Opposition, the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull MP, recently announced a major new climate change policy which acknowledges the role green buildings can play in the reducing Australia's greenhouse gasses. The Opposition has committed to introducing a range of measures and incentives that will support and encourage the uptake of green building design, construction and operation. Coalition support for accelerated depreciation is particularly welcome and has been a measure the GBCA has been advocating for some time.
Mr Turnbull also visited one of Brisbane's prominent green buildings - which recently received its 6 Star Green Star certification. The visit was facilitated by the Green Building Council and Leighton Holdings and involved a tour of the building and demonstrating its major sustainability features.
