Course details
Urban development sets the scene for carbon impacts for generations. Early decisions impact long-term transport, buildings, water, and waste infrastructure emissions.  

Precinct developments create exciting opportunities for carbon reductions by linking together planning, urban design, buildings, transport, and infrastructure. These are often championed but rarely delivered. We need a national approach to driving the decarbonisation of our precincts- one in which all relevant players can contribute.

GBCA is excited to launch our discussion paper, “A Climate Positive Roadmap for Precincts’’. It proposes a set of principles for climate positive precincts and ambitious targets for new and existing precincts to achieve decarbonisation by. It also spells out the 5 key actions needed to facilitate changes in the way we plan, design, and deliver our precincts- and importantly identifies the various stakeholders that can play a role in delivering those changes

This first release is a discussion paper built out of significant industry consultation. We aim to seek your input over the coming months and use it to produce a first version of the Roadmap by March 2022.

Whether you are a developer, investor, planner, precinct operator, materials supplier, or policymaker, this future roadmap will help you lead in the delivery of a more decarbonised built environment.  

The roadmap will set the trajectory and actions that need to happen to decarbonise precincts. It will: 

Set out the principles and outcomes to delivering climate positive precincts.
Define the key actions that will facilitate a scaling up of climate positive precincts.
Detail the stakeholders and the actions needed to make this roadmap a success.
Set a pathway for carbon reduction expectations within the Green Star Communities rating tool.
