After the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) developed the Sustainable Home Renovations Guide, Allianz and GBCA created Green Specs – a visual representation of the Guide, simplified into an interactive plan.
Both Allianz and GBCA are committed to encouraging Australian homeowners to turn sustainable suggestions into action. Green Specs is just the tool to help make that happen.
Allianz believes the insurance industry has an important role to play in transitioning the economy and our communities to net zero and to help them to better secure themselves against climate change.
Allianz is committed to supporting this transition through education, empowering Australians to make greener decisions and providing customers with information that can help them increase their resilience to the impacts of climate change.
