MECLA Working
Group 6 - Residential

Working Group 6 – Residential (WG6) is focused on accelerating the transition to a low carbon residential building sector. WG6 does this by focusing on a series of levers of change, including government procurement, listed entities such as REITs and superfunds which are bound by the emerging ESG reporting standards, and the higher end of custom residential market where clients and purchasers are looking to invest in lower carbon options.

"Our working group's purpose is to collaborate to facilitate a connection between the supply of low embodied materials and emerging demand from the residential building sector. To do this we will be analysing the segmentation in the residential building sector to identify the decision makers (builders, developers, owners and purchasers) that are most likely to be the first movers and early adopters of low carbon materials. Efficiently aggregating and connecting this first mover demand to the suppliers who are committed to the manufacture of lower carbon material that fit with industries existing labour and skills capacity will be the most effective way to progress the transition."
