Getting to Zero with Building Energy Codes: The biggest opportunity to respond to the climate emergency  (English available online, Bahasa Indonesia version coming soon)

PITCH TO POLICY (P>P)

P>P is a policy innovation competition, created by GBPN and Monash University, based on the highly successful ClimateLaunchpad. Its aim is to find and promote  sustainable building innovations.

Like a start-up competition, P>P trains teams to pitch ideas – but to governments rather than markets.

GBPN focuses on government-driven market reforms because they have potential for high impact; but also have high barriers to entry for start-ups, which can stifle clever new ideas.

The concept has already demonstrated its success, with P>P graduate team LEAD Consultancy and Engineering Services (India) winning an important government project using ideas and approaches learned during the competition.

The competition focuses on:

  • Collaborating with government to identify real problems requiring policy innovation
  • Teaching pitching skills through a 20-hour virtual course and boot camp
  • Connecting participants to influential decision makers from government and the buildings sector 

GBPN supports winning teams by promoting their innovations to its network and providing ongoing support to turn their concepts into reality.
