As a business focused on mutual success, innovative spaces and a better future, our long-term success is linked to our ‘For the Future’ framework and approach.
From considering our environmental impact and being more efficient with natural resources, to creating positive spaces that enable people and communities to be resilient and thrive, we make the most of opportunities to be more sustainable in everything we do.
A sustainable approach to tomorrow
We’ve created a framework to help define and set specific sustainability objectives for our business. Drawing on our guiding principles, and aligned with our corporate strategy, it enables us to be more accountable and work towards delivering long-term outcomes that are positive for all.
This means helping build strong communities and local economies, strengthening our position as a key local community player, addressing issues important to our business and our stakeholders and ensuring we are focused on creating healthy and productive work spaces for our people and extending this to our customers.
To keep us on the path to a more sustainable future, we regularly commission research and invite customers and stakeholders to share their experiences.
Together with understanding gained from emerging global issues, trends and best practice, these valuable insights help us set a number of Material Issues – core principles that our For the Future framework has been designed to address.
We have Australia's largest Green Star footprint.
Smart solutions make a difference - We have a footprint in over 100 communities across Australia, and we want to create a positive legacy with these communities.
This means by creating and maintaining high-performing, environmentally efficient and resilient assets, we can not only minimise our carbon emissions and environmental impacts, we can also help our stakeholders combat issues important to their business.
Charter Hall has a footprint in over 100 communities across Australia, and we want to create a positive legacy with these communities.
Our goal is to offer up to 1% of our spaces, profits and people’s time, to support community organisations and enterprises, such as local charities, arts and sports groups, in addressing issues important to our business and our stakeholders.
Increasingly, the business community is recognising the link between health and wellbeing and productivity within the workforce.
We create healthy and productive workspaces for our people and extending this to our customers. Going forward our focus on enabling wellbeing also extends to human rights and the elimination of modern slavery in our supply chain.
We support and actively participate in a range of industry specific sustainability groups and seek third party sustainability certification ratings on our designs and operational performance.
Our developments and operations are recognised by our peers and industry in awards and we're pleased with the improvements in our people and environmental performance factors.
