A review of recently updated building sustainability assessment tools conducted by PhD student Ms Amie Shuttleworth and Assistant Professor Dr Kristen MacAskill  of the Centre for Sustainable Development has found that there is significantly less focus on the integration of climate change adaptation compared with climate mitigation efforts.

Ms Shuttleworth and Dr MacAskill say that integrated frameworks are needed at the design phase to enable net zero adaptation in order to ensure that the built environment is equipped to withstand climate change.

To read more about the review's findings, please see the Department of Engineeering's news item.  

The review can be read on the IOPscience website: "Net zero adaptation—a review of built environment sustainability assessment tools"
