This project involved an investigation about carbon reduction behaviours of construction contractors.
University of Western Sydney Research Seed Grant
This project focused on built environment policy, organisational behaviour and provided a good foundation to complement existing construction research on sustainability. The project’s results suggest that construction stakeholders may not adjust their carbon-intensive ways of operations in response to the carbon price and tightening building regulations. Adoption of new carbon reduction technology, in practice, is a behavioural matter within an organisation.
The findings provided valuable insights into devising pragmatic solutions for promoting, accepting and implementing strategies which secure carbon reductions in the construction developments.
