Our impact

Local government plays an important role in built form sustainability. At CASBE, we are the link between local communities and higher levels of government.

With experience in constructing and operating buildings, as well as being the local planning authority managing development approvals, we’re able to advocate for change at the State and Federal Government levels.

Through a decade long collaboration, CASBE councils have initiated and achieved significant sustainability projects, including the Local Environmentally Sustainable Development (ESD) Planning Policies and the Built Environment Sustainability Assessment (BESS) tool.
