Australian Builders Declare Climate & Biodiversity Emergency

The twin crises of climate breakdown and biodiversity loss are the most serious issue of our time. Globally, buildings and construction account for almost 40% of our carbon dioxide emissions. Therefore, we need to change the way we build to take into account the limits of the natural environment in which in which we construct.

Together with our clients, we will need to design and build homes, cities and infrastructure that work with and strengthen, rather than degrade, the resilience of natural systems.

The research and technology exist for us to begin that transformation now, but what has been lacking is collective will. Recognising this, we are committing to strengthen our working practices to create architecture and urbanism that has a more positive impact on the world around us.

As a member of the construction industry aware of the Climate & Biodiversity Emergency I pledge to:

Founding signatories:
Aligned Building, Sustainable Homes Melbourne, Positive Footprints, Michael Limb Builders, Sanctum Homes, G-Lux Builders, Green Building Institute, ISMART building group

We hope that every building practice operating in Australia will join us in making this commitment.
