Project period: 
06/2018 to 12/2018

A coalition of sustainability leaders including the Australian Sustainable Building Council's (ASBEC) Sustainable Housing Task Group, the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH), CSIRO and the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) are developing the Sustainable Housing Industry Roadmap based on the work of the NSW Collaborative Sustainable Housing Initiative (CSHI) and the research of the CRC for Low Carbon Living (CRCLCL) (RP3009RP3016RP3021RP3028).

This project supplements the previous work by answering additional research questions around the value proposition of Sustainable Housing for the Construction Industry.

By demonstrating the economic value proposition for delivering sustainable housing that exceeds the minimum standards, the Roadmap aims to engage the construction industry in a new dialogue around market based solutions. 

This contrasts with (but complements) other CRC research (SP0009, SP0016) which focuses on regulatory solutions.
