Sydney Build Expo has confirmed that Climate Resilience and Sustainability will both be key themes for next year’s event, which is set to take place at the ICC Darling Harbour on 6-7 March 2023.  

In addition to seven other event stages, there will be a stage dedicated to Climate Resilience & Safety, and a separate stage focused solely on Sustainability.  

Director for Sydney Build Expo, James McKenzie, said, “The effects of climate change have never been more pronounced, with flash floods and fires being just a small part of the long-term issues facing Australia and the world.

“There is a huge push within the real estate industry to adapt and focus on more sustainable ways of building and also to mitigate the increasing risk of adverse events.

“Where and how to build safe and sustainable communities with the right buildings and infrastructure are important questions for government and industry. Our event will bring thousands of stakeholders together to learn, connect and be inspired to address these challenges,” Mr McKenzie said.  

The Climate Resilience & Safety stage is free for all to attend and will address topics such as fire, flooding, earthquake and natural disasters safety, building resilience to extreme weather conditions, quality assurance and defects.  

Alison Scotland, Executive Director, Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council  (ASBEC), will speak on a panel regarding decarbonising concrete. 

“ASBEC is committed to a vision of  more sustainable, productive and resilient buildings, communities and cities,” Ms Scotland said. 

“It’s  important to come together at events like Sydney Build Expo to discover solutions that enhance the built environment.” 

The Sustainability stage will address topics such as the circular economy, net zero, embodied carbon management, regenerative design, renewable energy, building life cycles and ESG sustainability. 

Head of Market Transformation at Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA), Jorge Chapa, will speak on a panel on ESG sustainability. 

“GBCA wants to accelerate the transformation of  Australia’s built environment into one that is healthy, liveable, productive, resilient and  sustainable,” Mr Chapa said.

“I’m looking forward to discussing how we can all work together on the pathway to net zero.”
