Green Buildings

At Canberra Airport we are leading the way in environmental performance of the built environment.

The Brindabella Business Park on Canberra Airport is the most sustainable business park in Australia. 8 Brindabella Circuit was the first 5 Star Green Star rated building in Australia, saving 450,000kg of carbon dioxide emissions annually – the equivalent of taking 113 cars off the road each year.

8 Brindabella Circuit features recycled building materials, avoidance of Volatile Organic Compounds, reduced noise levels, reduced water consumption, waste management initiatives, and strict control of ventilation and day lighting. The Building and surrounding infrastructure support alternative transport methods with public transport close by and cycle and shower facilities available.

Other buildings in the Brindabella Business Park have been built with the same environmental initiatives as 8 Brindabella Circuit as well as others such as:
- solar hot water
- car parking for small cars
- non potable water irrigation
- waterless urinals

Further information about environmental initiatives at Canberra Airport can be found in the Canberra Airport 2010 Environment Strategy and the Resources section below.

Canberra Airport is a proud member of the Green Building Council of Australia.
