Rod Fehring

Frasers Property Australia chief executive Rod Fehring has been appointed chair of the Green Building Council of Australia, taking over from Tanya Cox.

Mr Fehring said over the next year the GBCA would be focused on leading the shift to net zero buildings.

“The GBCA’s board is determined to accelerate market transformation and to set the sustainability agenda throughout our region – and I’m excited to be leading this transformative team of leaders,” he said.

Mr Fehring is joined by Lendlease chief executive, property Kylie Rampa and Multiplex chief executive John Flecker as deputy chairs.

GBCA chief executive Romilly Madew thanked outgoing chair Tanya Cox.

“Tanya’s term has been characterised by a laser-focus on strong governance, strategic board appointments and the development of an ambitious new agenda for a carbon positive industry,” Ms Madew said.

“Her impact will be felt for many years to come. Tanya will continue on the GBCA board and will remain as our representative on the World Green Building Council board as a member of its executive committee.”
