The City of Melbourne is committed to addressing the Climate Emergency through its Emissions Reduction Plan 2021-2026 and Climate Change Mitigation Strategy. 

Until now, much of the emphasis has rightly been on reducing operational emissions. The focus has now turned to embodied carbon which is present in all materials and products we use today. 

This talk will seek to facilitate an interactive discussion on the solutions to deliver sustainable built environments by using low carbon and low embodied energy materials, building better through robustness and minimising waste in construction. 

Join us for a broad-ranging panel discussion to explore the role of materials, emerging technology and alternative solutions to delivering sustainable built environments for an Enduring City.

Speakers will include:

  • Robbie Neville – Founder, Revival Projects 
  • Clare Parry, Sustainability Director, Development Victoria 
  • Mastura Mokhtar – Architect, Six Degrees Architects 
  • Grady Peterson – 7 Star Homes, Sustainability Victoria
