Ecologically Sustainable Development and Environmental Performance

Infrastructure Development and Support

The Defence Ecologically Sustainable Development Strategy provides guidance on the integration of ecologically sustainable development principles into the development of new Defence facilities, and the refurbishment of older properties. The Defence 'Green Building' guidelines are being finalised to integrate ecologically sustainable development principles into the Defence Infrastructure Asset Development and Approval Process for buildings to ensure longer-term sustainable environmental, economic and social outcomes. In 2004-05, Defence was awarded its first 5 star Green Stars Office Design rating, for the RAAF Base Richmond Project, Combined Squadron Headquarters. Defence also completed a two-year term as a founding board member of the Green Building Council of Australia and was elected as a Board Director for the next term.
