HASSELL TALKS Inside the push for net zero Perth
Perth in Western Australia has joined thousands of other cities around the world aiming for Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050. How will this unique city, facing unique climate challenges, meet the target? And how will designers help the city go beyond the standards to beat the clock and make a thriving, regenerative hub?
Hassell’s Sustainable Design Leader Karla Fox-Reynolds joined self-confessed ‘sustainability nerd’ the Hon. Dr. Brad Pettitt MLC and environmental scientist Prof. Josh Byrne for a conversation in our Perth studio on Whadjuk Country alongside peers from the design industry, and private and public organisations.
The conversation spanned commercial and residential, urban and public spaces and the potential for adaptive reuse in the transition to net zero.
