Exploring the New Green Star LCA Innovation Challenge 

As part of the Green Star 2014 program, the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) has announced the launch of two Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) based ‘Innovation Challenges’. Providing up to 8 points in the Green Star Innovation category, the challenges will encourage the industry to incorporate Whole of Building LCA (6 points) and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) (2 points) into new and registered Green Star projects.

Want to know more about GBCA’s Green Star Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) Innovation Challenges?

Then join eTool founders Alex Bruce and Richard Haynes to explore Whole of Building LCAs and Environmental Product Declarations and how to incorporate them into Green Star projects.

These sessions will cover the new LCA based Innovation Challenges and provide an explanation of all of the relevant components including Aims, Criteria, Compliance Requirements and Documentation.

The Carbon Reduction Race – Residential v Commercial

Throughout history, buildings have changed to address social needs. A dramatic example: the advent of the skyscraper a century ago, which exploited the new technology of steel framing to overcome the scarcity of real estate in teeming Australian cities. Suddenly real estate extended into a third dimension, enabling extraordinary growth in a contained footprint. 

Today’s building industry appears to be entering another era of change, with a view toward minimizing a different kind of footprint: the energy, carbon, and environmental footprint of commercial and residential buildings.

The industry’s aim is for ‘zero carbon’ buildings, but which buildings are at the forefront of leading the race towards this ever tightening goal?

Alex Bruce, Director of eTool, will present the case for the Residential sector and Oliver Grimaldi, Senior ESD Consultant at Cundall will present the case for the Commercial sector.

Sustainable Perth Speed Dating Breakfast

Sustainable City Documentary Screening 

Enrique Peñalosa, former mayor of Bogota, Colombia, transformed one of the most chaotic cities in the world into a shining model of urban planning. Peñalosa believed that cities should encourage walking and biking, which would in turn promote community and make the streets safer for children. Come along and watch how he made this remarkable transition happen in this documentary, Bogota: Building A Sustainable City.


All events will be hosted at the eTool and Cundall collaborative office in Perth CBD apart from Monday’s two presentations which will also be available as a webinar for those outside Western Australia.
