Opera House awarded for sustainability leadership - Green Building Council Australia

Romilly Madew, Chief Executive Officer of the Green Building Council of Australia said: “About 340 million square metres of commercial and public building space in Australia needs upgrading. Despite the operating costs amounting to around $27 billion a year, the general consensus has been that it’s ‘too hard’ to improve the sustainability of these buildings. The Sydney Opera House has laid down the gauntlet for the property industry with a pragmatic, practical approach which shows even the most iconic, historic and challenging buildings can be high-performing, energy efficient and sustainable. If you can green the Opera House, you can green anything.”
