A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:

UQ has almost 800 buildings across Queensland, and sees the design, operation and maintenance of this infrastructure as a significant opportunity to conserve energy and water and reduce waste. To ensure that our built environmental embodies sustainability principles, we undertake careful planning to identify and enhance desired campus elements, implement heritage and landscape planning and seek to minimise the effects of individual developments. UQ’s building design, construction and operation, preferred methodologies, technologies and equipment are defined in our Ecologically Sustainable Design (ESD) Guidelines.
