Rod Fehring, CEO of Frasers Property Australia, has been appointed chair of the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA).

The GBCA’s CEO Romilly Madew welcomed Fehring’s appointment and paid tribute to outgoing chair Tanya Cox. “Tanya’s term has been characterised by a laser-focus on strong governance, strategic board appointments and the development of an ambitious new agenda for a carbon positive industry. Her impact will be felt for many years to come. Tanya will continue on the GBCA board and will remain as our representative on the World Green Building Council board as a member of its executive committee,” Madew said.

Fehring is joined by deputy chairs Kylie Rampa, Lendlease’s CEO, Property Australia and John Flecker, CEO of Multiplex Australasia.

“As our cities grow, we have an obligation and an opportunity to embrace building practices that deliver healthy, resilient and positive places for people and the natural environment,” said Fehring.

“The GBCA’s focus over the next year will be leading the shift to net zero buildings, and to reshaping the way Australians live, work and play in their cities. The GBCA’s board is determined to accelerate market transformation and to set the sustainability agenda throughout our region — and I’m excited to be leading this transformative team of leaders.”
