Green buildings

To adapt to the increasing heat and weather impacts of climate change we  need to rethink the way we design, construct, maintain and use our buildings, homes and gardens. 

We can be smarter about how we use energy by adopting new and cleaner technologies to reduce our impact on the environment and save some money in the process.

The Green Buildings Initiative is an ongoing program to ‘green’ Council buildings. The program will reduce energy and water use, waste and greenhouse gas emissions from all council owned buildings over time and is an integral part of our commitment to reduce our carbon footprint.
