Please join us for City of Melbourne’s first ever Virtual Canopy Green Roof Forum as we launch City of Melbourne’s Green Factor Tool.

The Melbourne Green Factor Tool is an Australian-first online green infrastructure assessment tool aimed at landscape designers and architects, planners and developers. It has been developed to help aid better inclusion and implementation of high quality greening in new buildings, and to provide a metric for projects to benchmark their Green Infrastructure credentials. Green Factor rewards good design that addresses a range of environmental and social functions and benefits, backed up by the latest Green Infrastructure research.

This Canopy will be hosted online, with a welcome from Councillor Cathy Oke, as well as presentations from City of Melbourne’s Green Infrastructure team, our research partner from the University of Melbourne and a discussion of the tools potential application from Andy Fergus and MGS Architects. There will be also be an opportunity for a Q&A.

This virtual Canopy will be an opportunity for planners, architects, designers and developers to see the Green Factor Tool for the first time, as well as an invitation to test it on future projects.
