545 Queen Street Building Management Committee Meetings - 2010

National Recycling Week 2010

In support of National Recycling Week 8 - 14 November, we invited tenants, building owners, contractors and local government representatives to join our tour of waste and recycling facilities which enabled us to see for ourselves where our rubbish ends up!

It also gave an interesting insight into the technology being used to recycle every day household items discarded including e-waste, clothing and much more.

Building Management Committee Meetings - 2009

In early 2009 the Tenant Sustainability Forum was re-named Building Management Committee Meeting, in line with the Federal Government terminology for green leases.


In our first Tenant Forum for 2009, we outlined building performance for the 2008 calendar year in relation to water, waste and energy. We also explained the benefit of undertaking NABERS Energy ratings and demonstrated how to rate your tenancy.

We also gave a brief overview of how NABERS rating tools are used to benchmark performance of the building.
