Our vision is for the built environment to work in unison with nature
Our network supports pioneering developers, architects and engineers, asset owners and managers, investors and insurers, city leaders, academics, researchers, non-profits and policymakers in their journey to decarbonise our built environment and protect nature.
Connect Enable Amplify
To accelerate the timber building transformation, we connect industry and city frontrunners, creating the networks and opportunities for sector-shaping coalitions and knowledge sharing. We enable innovation and change by convening teams and funding solutions that highlight the innovation, city-scale projects and advocacy required, and amplify the success stories, case studies and knowledge generated by our networks.
Our Partners are those whose leadership and work drives our collective vision and mission. They are part of Built by Nature’s DNA – each leading on critical solutions to the challenges of the timber building transformation.
Built by Nature’s Frontrunners are recognised as industry leaders in sustainability and timber construction helping to drive this transformation through research, innovation, advocacy, demonstration and city-scale projects. They exhibit an entrepreneurial mindset that embraces cross-industry collaboration to deploy collective solutions for our planetary and societal wellbeing.
Our board members
Recognised as visionaries in the sustainability movement and proponents of transformation of the built environment, our board members are committed volunteers – contributing their time, profile and strategic acumen toward the effective governance and long-term strategic direction of Built by Nature.
