The Resilient Building Council brings together Australia’s leading independent experts to measurably increase community resilience to extreme weather and disasters. We work together to apply science into accessible, practical, transformational systems and tools.
We are leading a systems approach to adapting the built environment, co-ordinated across sectors and united by a shared vision. Our partnerships with communities, industry, research institutions and all levels of government are fundamental to achieve our common goal of an equitable, adapted, thriving nation.
In 2014, the Bushfire Building Council of Australia was established by founder and CEO Kate Cotter, to translate research into tangible action to reduce climate and disaster risk for households, communities, governments and industry, focusing on bushfire resilience.
Since then, we have evolved to address all hazards and energy efficiency, delivering national systems to rapidly increase resilience of the built environment.
Our new name – Resilient Building Council – better reflects our role as leading climate and disaster resilience experts addressing all types of extreme weather, disasters and energy efficiency.
