City of Sydney
Consult with relevant industry stakeholders and develop policy and program options for the existing commercial buildings in the City of Sydney that are not currently targeted by an environmental program.
An options report was developed by Patrick Crittenden. The paper was based on desktop research, extensive discussions with the City of Sydney staff and two collaborative workshops with stakeholder groups.
The options paper:
describes the characteristics of the mid-tier property sector
provides an overview of diffusion of innovation theory as a framework to guide program decisions
lists a set of program design principles
outlines information, advisory, incentive and regulatory options
proposes a staged approach to program development over 5 years
details recommended actions to be taken in the first year of a proposed program
