CASBE advocates on behalf of our members for more sustainable built environments. We seek to provide a local government perspective to the discussion and debate on sustainability in planning and buildings.
CASBE regularly contributes submissions to policy discussions at state and national level. We are able to draw on a wide range of local government experience to provide a comprehensive summary of the issues at hand.
We also actively engage with industry bodies and state government to support research into transition paths for sustainable buildings.
Some of our recent submissions can be found here.
