Our buildings, infrastructure and transport have great potential for reducing emissions in our cities and settlements.

Solutions for net zero emissions cities and settlements – electrifying our buildings and vehicles using renewable electricity, energy efficiency, mass transit, and smarter precinct planning and design – bring financial, environmental and social benefits.

Benefits include cleaner and quieter cities; safer, cheaper and more efficient transport; energy savings and enhanced quality of life. Smart planning and an economy that keeps products and materials in use to design out waste and pollution can help design more livable and sustainable cities. We work with industry bodies, federal, state and local governments and governmental bodies to develop pathways and practical steps towards net zero solutions. We have:

  • Partnered with ASBEC to initiate change in Australia’s building codes
  • Worked with local councils to increase uptake of electric vehicles
  • Evaluated the future of private transport in Australia
