Submission on Trajectory for Low Energy Buildings: Coordinated Policy Options for Existing Commercial Buildings Draft Report
The Property Council of Australia, the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) are grateful for the opportunity to provide input to the Trajectory for Low Energy Buildings: Coordinated Policy Options for Existing Commercial Buildings Draft Report.
The Property Council and the GBCA urge the Commonwealth to prioritise the built environment in its plans for emissions reduction.
The challenge for policy makers is to extend the substantial progress made by market leaders across the entire sector.
Although the built environment represents some of the lowest cost emissions abatement opportunities, there are persistent barriers to the uptake of energy efficiency that require strong and targeted policy support to address.
