Issues paper: Reshaping Infrastructure for a net zero emissions future

Infrastructure has a significant, lasting influence on Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. Around 70% of Australia’s emissions are associated with infrastructure projects, according to the issues paper published in partnership by the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA), Climateworks Australia and the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC).

Low carbon opportunities for Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam

The global economy is transitioning towards cleaner and less carbon-intensive forms of growth. Southeast Asia could be at the forefront of this emerging ‘green race.’ How can Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam take advantage of growing low-carbon markets?

Taking the long view

Strong economic growth can be achieved without increasing emissions. A long term approach to avoiding emissions growth is essential to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Building code energy performance trajectory project – issues paper

Energy requirements for new construction in building codes are key to reaching energy and emissions goals. In 2017 Climateworks Australia partnered with the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC) to develop an industry-led pathway for energy requirements within the National Construction Code (NCC).
