Green Team 2012

WorldSkills Australia hosts some of the nation’s largest and most logistically-complex events, catering for up to 60 different skill categories at the biennial WorldSkills Australia National Competitions.

Running these skill categories uses significant quantities of water, energy and materials, and generates multiple waste streams.For the 2012 National Competition, WSA, DSF and ARUP worked alongside to trial a more robust approach to assess the comparative sustainability of the categories participating and also, the first year that the Green Team considered environmental, social and economic impacts in the planning and design of category projects.
