What you'll do
I’ll take you behind-the-scenes to see how this pioneering carbon neutral building continues to reduce its environmental impact by committing to energy efficiency, green cleaning, waste recycling, and more. We’ll be able to access rarely seen spaces beneath the sails which together have helped make the Opera House one of the only World Heritage-listed buildings to achieve green certification globally. We’ll finish at Opera Kitchen for coffee where we can discuss simple ways to make your own home more sustainable.
