First round – Issues Paper

With the announcement of the 2019 Review of the Commercial Building Disclosure Program, a series of stakeholder consultations were held in February 2019 in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

If you were unable to participate in the initial forums, the forum presentation is available below. The Centre for International Economics is undertaking the Review, which will evaluate the impact of the program and consider the case for expansion to shopping centres, data centres, office tenancies and hotels.
