In just a month, the planning, energy, and building Ministers from each state and territory will meet to decide on new rules which will decide whether all new housing developments will be a part of the solution to climate change, or continue to make things worse.

Right now, our homes contribute 13% of our national CO2-e emissions. But they don't have to. We already have cost-effective designs and technologies to eliminate these emissions. The Government's own economic research shows that these buildings will be cheaper for homeowners as well as protect our climate by being zero emission homes. It makes no sense for our National Construction Code to not mandate zero emission buildings now.

Can you email your state/territory building Ministers and call on them to ensure the updates to the National Construction Code sets net zero emissions as the requirement for all new building developments?
