Liveability and affordability through sustainable housing

Liveability and affordability through sustainable housing

Oct 24
CEDA NSW/ACT is delighted to welcome Green Building Council of Australia Chief Executive Officer, Davina Rooney to the 2019 Trustee program. 


Davina Rooney, Chief Executive Officer, Green Building Council of Australia

Event overview

Davina Rooney will explore and discuss the challenges and opportunities in leading the sustainable transformation of homes in Australia. If our population continues to grow at its current rate, to an estimated 31 million people by 2030, we will need to construct as many as 197,000 homes a year. Our homes alone produce around 13 per cent of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions.

With rising energy costs, increasing inequality across our cities, and consumers and investors more focused than ever on sustainability, a collaborative model to secure better homes for all Australians is more important than ever.

This briefing is by invitation only to CEDA Trustees. Trustees are senior leaders nominated by CEDA member organisations. At CEDA boardroom briefings Trustees hear from an informed, expert guest speaker in a private, small group setting. Invitations to boardroom briefings are a valued benefit of CEDA membership.
