SP0009: Policy and Regulation for Low Carbon Outcomes in the Built Environment

Project leader name:

Project status: 
Project period: 
10/2016 to 04/2017

The CRCLCL undertook a study comparing Australian and global best practices in policy and regulation for the energy and carbon performance of the built environment.

It examined opportunities and barriers relating to the adoption of best practices in Australia, and proposed a potential set of optimal measures, at national, state/territory and local levels, along with an indicative pathway for their implementation.

The outcome of this project was the report Best Practice Policy and Regulation for Low Carbon Outcomes in the Built Environment (see below link), which also informed discussions at the CRCLCL National Forum: Regulating the Transition to a Low Carbon Built Environment, held in Canberra on 21 April 2017.
