All members are invited to participate in ASBEC Task Groups.
Task groups in place are:
The aim of the Resilience Task Group is to drive a consistent national agenda to increase the resilience of the built environment in the face of predicted climate change impacts, extreme weather events and increasing population demands.
The Task Group is working towards a policy agenda that ensures:
- Resilience is an important and appropriately integrated part of Government policy framework.
- The built environment sector is equipped to address resilience.
The Cities Task Group aims to develop and advocate for policy focused on improving the long-term productivity, liveability and sustainability of cities and urban communities, in the context of growth and change.
The Task Group is focused on a policy agenda that delivers:
- Government policy settings which reflect a stronger and more valued role for cities and urban communities in driving productivity, liveability and sustainability.
- The right investments and settings that enable our cities to grow and change.
The Housing Task Group aims to drive demand for more sustainable, accessible, liveable, productive and innovative residential development and housing.
The Task Group has developed a National Framework for Residential Ratings, which promotes a nationally harmonised framework for more sustainable, accessible, productive and liveable residential development and housing.
The Task Group has produced the Low Carbon High Performance report, which quantifies the contribution the building sector can make to Australia’s energy efficiency, and outlines a roadmap for reduced emissions and higher energy productivity for Australia’s building sector to 2050.
Advocacy of the recommendations within this report is currently underway by the Task Group.
