Melbourne Honoured with Prestigious Climate Leadership Award

By Matt Hurlston

Home buyers interested in Carnegie real estate will have further reason to set up home in Melbourne after the city was awarded with a prestigious international green building award last week.

The inaugural City Climate Leadership Awards were held on September 4, recognising 10 cities for excellence in urban sustainability and leadership in the fight against climate change.

The C40 and Siemens Climate Leadership Award from the Energy Efficient Built Environment category was presented to Melbourne Mayor Robert Doyle at the ceremony. New York and Berlin were also noted to be contenders for the award.

Mr Doyle commented that Melbourne is the most liveable city in the world and has now been recognised at having some of the smartest buildings in the world.

"We know that sustainability and liveability are inexorably linked. For us to maintain a high standard of living we need to set the highest standards in sustainability.

"Every piece of research tells me that a sustainable city with high quality of life will attract the best and brightest and that’s what drives innovation and economic growth."

He adds that the 1200 Buildings retrofitting program is expected to generate an economic boost of $2 billion and create 8,000 jobs.
