Property Council supports the overall intent of the Building for Climate Change frameworks. At a high level, we recommend MBIE:
- Define building types and intended use alongside clear and achievable guidelines;
- Establish an industry advisory panel to allow real world testing of targets, timelines and implementation proposals;
- Establish a simple process for Consents and Code Compliance Certificates;
- Work with the sector to enable access to low carbon products; and
- Develop incentives to encourage uptake and overall improvement.
