Green Buildings Alive
Green Buildings Alive is an online community for anyone sharing an interest in how to make buildings run well with lower environmental impact. An initiative of Buildings Alive Pty Ltd, it provides a forum for discussion and insights from the field of active energy and environmental management in buildings.
Green Buildings Alive exists to foster transparency and inform debate around what approaches are most effective in tackling resource and energy use in buildings. The site shares real data and stories from the sector to help reach these goals. We invite comments, ideas, data and data visualisations from anyone and everyone who has an interest in making buildings perform better.
Buildings Alive Pty Limited
Buildings Alive was formed on 1 November 2012 to provide an independent energy efficiency information service for building owners and operators. Its innovative social learning framework combines automated energy analytics, facilitated peer to peer learning environments, online resources and tailored analysis and benchmarking services. These services fit into the daily routine of building managers and are helping to cut greenhouse gas emissions from over 750,000m2 of office accommodation every day.
Green Buildings Alive and the Pulse tool were initially sponsored and developed by the Investa Sustainability Institute. Investa’s rights were transferred to Buildings Alive Pty Ltd in October 2012 and it retains no ownership or proprietary interest in the venture.
