Helping Indonesia to Leapfrog West’s Mistakes
Chris Tanner participated in an Austrade Green Building Mission to Indonesia to explore new opportunities in the country. During the mission, Chris was interviewed by Willow Aliento from The Fifth Estate – a widely read online sustainable property news forum. According to Chris, the growing green building sector in Indonesia should look critically at what the more developed nations have not done so well, and “leap frog” those technologies and approaches, while adopting and innovating on those ones which have worked. He also believes there are opportunities for Australian engineering and architecture firms to be part of the progress in niche roles, providing high levels of advisory services and assistance.
