The 2019-2020 Australian bushfires destroyed 5,900 buildings and homes. 2.9 million people had their homes damaged, threatened, or were temporarily displaced. The Green Rebuild Toolkit is a set of resources to help those people rebuild their homes and increase resistance to future climate disasters.

The Green Rebuild Toolkit is a project from Renew. We’ve been providing expert, independent advice on sustainable solutions for the home to households, government and industry since 1980.
