Sustainability expert Davina Rooney will join the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) as the new chief executive officer.

She was formerly the General Manager of Sustainability and Corporate Procurement at Stockland.

Davina brings her experience as an engineer and 'change agent' to Australia’s authority on sustainable buildings and communities.

GBCA Chair Rod Fehring said, “Davina has led Stockland to be a global leader on sustainability in property, achieving  a raft of international accolades from leading organisations DJSI, GRESB and CDP. Davina has also steered industry-leading initiatives at Stockland, including the largest rollout of solar panels in the property industry and the most Green Star Design & As Built rated shopping centres in the country.    

Davina said she would focus on achieving real outcomes for low-energy buildings and communities. 

“The GBCA, and outgoing CEO Romilly Madew AO, have had a transformational impact on the Australian market and this is something I look forward to building on in the years ahead. 

Davina won numerous awards including the NAWIC NSW 2016 Sustainability Award, PCA 2014 Future Leaders Award and Sydney University Engineering Young Alumni Award. 

She has contributed to the GBCA as a member of the Green Star Steering Committee for the last three years, and the Green Star Advisory Committee over the last 12 months and has recently completed her two-year term as the Chair of the Property Council’s National Sustainability Roundtable.

The outgoing chief executive officer Romilly Madew AO acted as CEO for more than thirteen years,

She is departing to take on the role of Infrastructure Australia chief executive officer.
