Posted 29 August 2018 - 10:00am

The CRC for Low Carbon Living (CRCLCL) is a finalist in the Office of Environment and Heritage’s NSW Green Globe Awards.

The CRCLCL has been shortlisted for the Built Environment category with Fujitsu Australia: Driving Energy Transparency in Data Centres and Mirvac: Bay Centre 6 Stars.

The Built Environment Award recognises excellence and innovation in sustainable design, construction, retrofitting and operation of existing or new buildings, precincts and tenancies.

The CRCLCL is helping prevent climate change by assisting Australia’s built environment sector to move towards a globally competitive low carbon future by committing to contributing a cumulative reduction in carbon emissions of 10 megatonnes by 2020, enabling a projected economic benefit to Australia of over $684 million by 2027.

By supporting outstanding research, the CRCLCL meet the needs of end users, including manufacturers of building materials and products; architects, planners and developers; home owners and communities; and government and regulatory organisations.

CRCLCL CEO Scientia Professor Deo Prasad was awarded an individual GreenGlobe Award in 2004 for ‘showing leadership and commitment to the supply of renewable energy’.

The award winners will be announced at an event to be hosted by the Minister for the Environment, Gabrielle Upton at the Art Gallery of NSW in October.
