Planning for net zero energy buildings in Greater Sydney consultation
The City of Sydney won the 2021 Local Government Planning Award and the 2021 Planning Institute of Australia (NSW) Climate Change and Resilience Award for its Planning for Net Zero Energy Buildings Project.
The project team collaborated extensively with stakeholders for three years to develop energy performance standards for net zero energy buildings, to contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions across Greater Sydney.
In April 2021, Cred Consulting was tasked by the City to design and facilitate the final stakeholder engagement sessions for the project, which sought to seek endorsement for the proposed step changes in energy performance standards in planning controls, prior to their finalisation and endorsement.
