Discover how Integrative Design and new innovative Life Cycle Analysis Software for the built environment eTool is boosting efficiency, increasing ROI and minimizing carbon outputs on both new and existing buildings!
There might not be a carbon tax with a change of government in Australia, but they will want direct action. Other countries across the Asia Pacific region are also just starting to engage with business to improve their building performance – so join us for a one hour webinar Tues 24th September to celebrate World Green Building Week that will deliver effective direction action and allow YOU to pocket the savings!
MOSS CEO Anne-Maree Huxley will facilitate the webinar with special guest speakers Nigel Grier, Director BE Integrative Design (Singapore) and Alex Bruce, Director eTool (Australia).
While forming the basis of the British and European standard for calculating environmental impacts of buildings (BS EN 15978:2011) LCA is now rapidly propagating into the industry as can be seen with its incorporation into BREEM, LEED, and more recently in Australia’s Green Building Council ‘Green Star’.
Up to eight points can be claimed under the updated Innovation category with the Green Building Council of Australia with the maximum points in the category being raised from 5 to 10 pointscommencing September 15. eTool LCA is currently the only tool on the market that systematically provides the rigor of built form LCA’s in a user friendly manner so MOSS are delighted to introduce you to this important resource tool as it can be utilised across all construction projects from residential to commercial buildings through to developments and infrastructure.
Presented by MOSS, this webinar will be delivered Tuesday September 24.

Life Cycle Assessment or LCA is a standard environmental accounting method that quantifies the natural resource consumption and associated impacts of a product over its entire life cycle from “cradle to grave” or “cradle to cradle”. In buildings and infrastructure, LCA accounts for the impacts of manufacturing building materials, their transport, assembly and maintenance as well as incorporating the operational impacts of the building over its design life.
