The annual BEMP summit is co-hosted by the following industry associations:

Australian Institute of Architects

The Australian Institute of Architects is a national body consisting of over 11,500 members across Australia and overseas. The Institute was formed in 1930 when state architectural Institutes combined to form a unified national association with the following aims:

  • To advance architecture
  • To maintain the integrity and standing of the profession
  • To promote the profession’s views nationally and internationally, and
  • To encourage the study of architecture

Consult Australia

The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) is the nation’s authority on sustainable buildings and communities. The GBCA’s mission is to accelerate the transformation of Australia’s built environment into one that is healthy, liveable, productive, resilient and sustainable. The GBCA works together with industry and government to encourage policies and programs that support its mission. The Council educates thousands of people each year on how to design and deliver sustainable outcomes for buildings and communities. And it operates Australia’s only national, voluntary, holistic rating system for sustainable buildings and communities – Green Star.
