In Australia we spend on average 90 percent of our time indoors.

Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors, through the choice of materials and products used in building construction and fit out can help reduce the risk of indoor health concerns and at the same time help our planet too.

Come and learn from Kate Harris, CEO of GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia) on the choices you can make to ensure better outcomes for planet and people.

Look at ways to improve indoor environment qualities through informed building design, product and material choices.

Hannah Moreton who will introduce the WELL Building Standard will join Kate, to discuss it’s principles, the benefits of being in a WELL Certified Building and where and how GECA certified products can contribute.

Green Building rating schemes and third–party certifications go hand in hand, since certified products help meet certain credits and points under a building ratings scheme.
