New South Wales

The NSW Government committed to long-term reduction targets in 2005, including a 60% cut in greenhouse emissions by 2050 and a return to year 2000 greenhouse emission levels in NSW by 2025. To reach these targets, a number of key initiatives are available for the building sector.

The Government is also committed to sustainability targets beyond emission reductions and energy efficiency, including securing sustainable supplies of water; holistic community- and city-level sustainability, incorporating public transport, walking and cycling considerations in all land-use plans; increasing the number of jobs closer to home; and reducing waste.
