Moving the property carbon needle
The property sector faces challenges and opportunities in reducing the role of carbon
Climate risk has quickly become a first-order risk to cities, with broad-ranging impacts on the livelihoods of people and economies but more crucially, the future of the world.
Australia’s long-term emissions reduction plan is to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, with Western Australia (WA) also announcing aspirations of the same. As such, the real estate industry is under intense pressure to deliver a net zero built environment. With 55% of carbon emissions within WA typically coming from buildings, the property sector must play an integral role in the race to net zero.
