Community Works offers services in community engagement for sustainable housing in remote communities. The goal is to support residents to live sustainably in their houses while respecting their culture and their environment.
Community Works has developed a framework to engage communities on sustainable housing that includes the participation of community members to create a sustainability rating adaptable for each community. The rating will vary, depending on the sustainability priorities identified by the community as well as the specific
environmental context. The rating is produced through specific, measurable criteria and sub-criteria that are weighted according to
their relevance to the community context.
The framework is designed for the development of new houses and the improvement of current housing stock. Ratings will drive community-led improvements in the suitability and the environmental sustainability of houses. They allow the identification of priority actions and enable regular monitoring.
