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.

Building a New System for Thriving Communities

The Resilient Building Council’s collaborative, systems-based approach reduces Australia’s growing risk and vulnerability to all natural hazards.

If we invest in protecting the built environment from the impacts of extreme weather and disasters, we will protect lives, businesses, livelihoods and communities and deliver attractive assets for investors – creating socially and economically sustainable, thriving communities.
