Kingspan Insulation was given the opportunity to become a proud sponsor partner of this unique sustainability event that has driven change to the built environment for over a decade. Green Cities is an annual gathering bringing together thought leaders, industry experts and individuals, and promotes sustainability initiatives in Australia.
Site visits form an integral part of the Green Cities experience. Kingspan Insulation proudly sponsored the site visit to the University of Melbourne. Melbourne is the first Australian university to achieve a 6 Star Green Star - Communities rating.
The campus encompasses a myriad of sustainable infrastructure, but of course, Kingspan was most proud to showcase its super high performance, Kooltherm phenolic insulation boards that drive energy efficiency in some of the recent, marquee buildings.
The University of Melbourne has committed to net zero carbon emissions from electricity by 2021 and complete carbon neutrality before 2030. As a company that prides itself on its own world class, energy efficient manufacturing plant, and strives for 100% net zero energy by 2020 globally, Kingspan are true supporters of the initiatives presented at Green Cities.
Kingspan were proud to partner the Green Building Council of Australia and the Property Council of Australia for Green Cities, and are proud to partner the leading edge campus upgrades at the University of Melbourne into the future!
