Yesterday City of Melbourne launched the Green Factor Tool at an online Canopy Forum. This tool is aimed at landscape designers and architects, planners and developers to help aid better inclusion and implementation of high quality greening in new buildings, and to provide a metric for projects to benchmark their Green Infrastructure credentials. It is part of City of Melbourne's work to respond to the climate and biodiversity emergency.
Stormwater reduction is one of the key Green Factor Tool new building objectives along with urban heat island reduction, biodiversity, social amenity and urban food production. You can watch the launch online.
