Slattery is thrilled to announce its Carbon Planning Service has been chosen as a finalist for the Property Council Innovation and Excellence Awards in the Best Project Innovation category!

In 2021, Slattery became the first Quantity Surveying firm in Australia to launch a carbon planning service. In conjunction with Cost Planning, this service assists clients in achieving Net Zero and sustainability targets, with a focus on addressing and educating clients on the upfront embodied carbon of their developments.

With buildings producing 25% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions, managing carbon is of huge importance to the property and construction industry. A key step in reducing carbon is understanding the difference between embodied carbon and operational carbon. Embodied carbon equates to 35%-45% of carbon emissions for a typical building in today’s market but is forecast to increase to 85% of a building’s whole-life carbon emissions by 2050 (GBCA, Thinkstep-ANZ).

We are so proud of this service and are delighted it has been recognised!

Congratulations to all other nominees in this category. We look forward to attending the Innovation & Excellence Awards on the 2nd of September.
