AU - CBR Government Workplace Forum

Tuesday, July 25, 2023 to Tuesday, July 25, 2023
Hotel Realm Canberra, ACT, Australia


Government attendees - please email to secure your complimentary ticket.



Over the last 3-year period we’ve seen a significant shift in values – back to the grass roots of what really matters!  This has influenced Government and private sector commitments to heightened focus on environmental outcomes and performance and a desire to realise deepened and richer organisational connection with employees.


The CoreNet Global Australia Chapter Government Forum will investigate the shifts and influence on Corporate Real Estate.  


Join us for inspiring insight and conversation exploring transition towards:

  • Achieving APS Net Zero 2030 
  • Future of Canberra - its original vision and future trajectory 
  • Reconnection and renewed focus on employee value proposition in a remote working world 
  • ESG and shifting reinforcement towards (S) social and (G) governance.


These emerging shifts will be addressed by a dynamic group of industry leaders who will share their experiences, research, and insights at this year's Government Forum.









Session 1:  Are you ready for Net Zero?


APS Net Zero 2030 is the Government’s Policy for the Australian Public Service (APS) to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to Net Zero by 2030, and transparently report on its emissions from mid-2023 onwards.   The policy is being finalised by the Department of Climate Change, Energy, Environment and Water, so it’s consistent with Australia’s international commitments and will contribute to achievement of Australia’s Paris Agreement targets.


However, what does this really mean for Government?  How can the targets within this policy be achieved?  What could all Government entities be doing now to prepare?  What impacts will this have operationally?  And ultimately, how do we think Net Zero can be achieved?


These questions and more will be discussed and addressed by Emma Wright, Venita’s Sustainability Director.
