Built to Perform: An industry led pathway to a zero carbon ready building code

report cover

Energy standards in Australia’s National Construction Code must be urgently upgraded if new buildings are to be fit and ready for a zero carbon future, according to a new report ​Built to Perform,​ prepared by ClimateWorks Australia and the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council. The report shows that setting stronger energy standards for new buildings in the Code could, between now and 2050, reduce energy bills by up to $27 billion, cut energy network costs by up to $7 billion and deliver at least 78 million tonnes of cumulative emissions savings.
