This report is the culmination of a scoping study intended to inform participants of the Australian Cooperative Research Centre and the property and construction industry regarding sustainability trends and provisions in property and construction, and in particular whether sustainability should be an objective of the Future Building Code of Australia (BCA21). The scoping study was made up of two parts: the Stage 1 report (the literature review) and the Stage 2 report (the workshops). The findings of these two stages underpin the overarching conclusions and recommendations.
