Peter Graham

Buildings can become answers to the global energy supply questions. What is needed is a global movement that decides to change the ‘buildings paradigm’. It is time for buildings to play a major role in their ecosystem towards developing ecologically positive built environments.

Peter Graham’s career in sustainable building spans all levels of the industry, from the construction site to university, and from boardrooms to international negotiations. He is the Executive Director of the Global Buildings Performance Network (www.gbpn.org), an international network of experts dedicated to achieving the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions from the buildings sector. He has more than 20 years experience in international advocacy, research and education in sustainable building design, construction, evaluation and policy. Previously he has been the Technical Advisor and past Coordinator of the United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) Sustainable Buildings and Climate Initiative where he developed and managed many of UNEP’s key research projects and publications in the building sector. Peter is also an Associate Professor in Architecture at Monash University. His previous roles include Deputy Director of the Centre for Urban Transitions, and Node leader for the CRC for Low Carbon Living at Swinburne University of Technology, Head of Discipline for Architecture & Design and Stream-Leader in the Architecture Program at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. He began his academic career at RMIT as lecturer in Sustainable Construction.
