This page has been archived and replaced with the new Sector Working Groups page.

The Built Environment Working Group convenes professionals involved in design, procurement, construction and maintenance of buildings and infrastructure, including architects, planners, engineers, regulatory bodies and standard-setting institutions.

We have the opportunity to avoid slipping back into our previous behaviour, to question it, and to use the opportunity to collectively call for change,” Hannah Corlett, founder of HNNA.

In November 2020 the group hosted a webinar series to explore how Australia will transform practice across the built environment sector for zero emissions futures. View the recordings of each session below.
