Australian Constructors Association Joins Forces with Nature Positive Economy CRC

April 12, 2024

The Australian Constructors Association (ACA) is proud to announce our partnership with the Nature Positive Economy Cooperative Research Centre (CRC), marking a significant step forward in our commitment to creating a more sustainable construction industry for the benefit of all Australians.

The ACA, as the national voice for Australia’s leading construction and infrastructure firms, plays a crucial role in shaping industry standards and government policies. Our aim is to ensure the delivery of high-performing assets and services within the infrastructure, building, resources, and energy sectors. This partnership with the Nature Positive Economy CRC aligns with our core goals and reflects our dedication to the three pillars of a sustainable construction industry: equitable commercial frameworks, a positive industry culture, and a skilled workforce capable of delivering exceptional projects.

Meet the Team: Kristin Moss, Head of Policy

Kristin Moss brings over two decades of experience in policy development, program management, and strategic consulting. Her expertise in transforming high-level ideas into practical solutions makes her an invaluable asset to the ACA team and this new partnership. Kristin’s work focuses on bridging the gap between government and industry, ensuring the construction sector’s voice is heard and acted upon in environmental and sustainability discussions.

Why Join the Nature Positive Economy CRC?

The Nature Positive Economy CRC offers an unprecedented opportunity for the construction sector to collaborate on addressing indirect impacts on nature, in line with the emerging standards set by the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures. This partnership represents a collective effort to enhance the management of nature-related issues within our industry, moving towards more sustainable and environmentally responsible construction practices.

What Excites Us About This Partnership?

The ACA is particularly enthusiastic about the potential to standardise and improve reporting outcomes across the construction industry, fostering transparency and authenticity that meet the expectations of all stakeholders. By working closely with the Nature Positive Economy CRC, we aim to develop and implement strategies that not only mitigate our environmental impact but also contribute positively to the natural world.

This collaboration underscores our commitment to a sustainable future, leveraging the CRC’s research and innovation capabilities to drive systemic change within the construction industry. Together, we are set to make strides towards a more resilient, nature-positive economy.

Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting partnership and the transformative projects it will bring to life.
