The West Australian

The multi award-winning community of Alkimos Beach, which received Western Australia’s first six-leaf accreditation under the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s (UDIA) EnviroDevelopment scheme in 2012, has obtained re-accreditation in all six ‘leaves’ under the program in 2020.

To achieve an EnviroDevelopment rating, a project must meet rigorous criteria and achieve a minimum number of credits in at least one of six categories or ‘leaves’ of energy, water, community, ecosystems, materials and waste. The more leaves a development has been awarded, the more sustainable initiatives it is implementing.
