EnviroDevelopment helps buyers recognize and select a more environmentally sustainable development. By purchasing within an EnviroDevelopment you know you are living or working in a community with reduced environmental impact and one that encourages a healthy lifestyle.
EnviroDevelopment certification recognises developments across Australia with outstanding sustainability performance, based on a set of National Standards. There are over 125 projects certified around the country. Certification covers up to six key areas including ecosystems, waste, energy, materials, water and community.
A development that has been certified in any of the areas has demonstrated they are leaders and can offer buyers many advantages, which may include reduced household running costs, healthier space and communities, improved marketability of your home and reducing your ecological footprint.
EnviroDevelopment encourages a strong focus on the education of resident, tenants and users and many EnviroDevelopments provide buyers with valuable resources and information on how to best use the features included into the whole development and each building or home as well as other tips on how to become an active contributor to a more sustainable, more liveable local community.
Protecting and enhancing native ecosystems and ecological function, and rehabilitating degraded sites.
Reducing the amount of waste to landfill and waste management practices that facilitate recycling.
Implementing measures to optimise energy reduction across the project including the buildings, beyond current regulations.
Utilising environmentally responsible materials and construction methods to lower environmental impacts.
Implementing measures to reduce potable water use across the project including the buildings, beyond current regulations.
Encouraging healthy and active lifestyles, community spirit, local facilities, alternative transport modes and consideration of accessible and flexible design.
