The CRC for Low Carbon Living (CRCLCL) is a national research and innovation hub, enabling a globally competitive low carbon built environment sector.
Focusing on collaborative innovation, we bring together property, planning, engineering and policy organisations with leading Australian researchers. The CRCLCL develops new social, technological and policy tools for facilitating the development of low carbon products and services to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the built environment.
Good Compass' Good Rewards program, based on motivational science and game strategies, is designed to be an enduring framework to positively influence and reward sustainable behaviours simultaneously on both the supply and demand sides. The program aims to collectively accelerate the shift towards more sustainable behaviours by engaging, collaborating and connecting stakeholders across all sectors and all levels to transform the tourism industry for good.
The GSTC Sustainable Tourism Training Program (STTP) offered a number of 2- and 3-day intensive and interactive onsite training classes focused on the GSTC Sustainable Tourism Criteria, and engaged tourism industry professionals around the world through expert presentations and discussions on sustainable tourism best practices for businesses and destinations.
The STTP, begining in 2017, offered online scheduled training classes led by GSTC trainers, available at least 4 times a year.
Our project’s focus is behaviour change of staff and guests in tourism. Crystal Creek Meadows of Kangaroo Valley NSW Australia invited a smart system which encourages behaviour change through technology and training. We have now expanded this initial test to include partners in Australia, Dubai and UK. The system involves tourist accommodation asking guests to participate in using fewer resources and to use the pro-environmental infrastructure of the building to best effect.
We have successfully developed an innovative system that delivers exceptional guest service, saves resources and contributes to biodiversity conservation. In a 17 month trial at a 4 ½ star accommodation, guests were persuaded to use significantly less electricity, gas and water while they enjoyed richer personalised experiences. Partners are now actively sought to trial this system which includes a research support plan.
