The aim of the project was to generate a new Green Globe product by creating a new standard, the Precinct Planning and Design Standard (PPDS). The PPDS has to be suitable for use with developments such as Salt and Sydney Olympic Park (SOP). The existing design and construct standard is too narrow to use in isolation for the Salt and SOP projects, since it is largely a building-oriented standard. The Salt/SOP developments are multi-land use and multi-functional and need to be tested by a more holistic product, such as the PPDS.

This study considers current attitudes towards and adoption of environmentally sustainable practices of Victorian  tourism enterprises. Using a purposive sample of businesses in the Geelong Otway region, in-depth interviews were conducted. These interviews provided a wealth of information relating to perceived benefits and barriers to adopting environmentally sustainable practices. The findings demonstrate that, while many operators are aware of environmentally sustainable practice and have a positive personal philosophy towards implementing them, they remain constrained by business needs  such as customer demands and limited acceptance of certification and accreditation programs.
