Sustainable Property

The property sector, including both residential and commercial buildings, accounts for around a quarter of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions and is a massive consumer of energy, water and materials. To limit global warming to less than two degrees celsius, industry experts have suggested that all buildings must be “net-zero carbon” by 2050. Meeting this goal will require a radical change in the way that buildings are constructed and operated. At the same time, our changing climate will need buildings and communities to be more resilient and adaptable than ever before.

Edge Environment has extensive experience across the building life cycle, with clients spanning building products through to construction, property owners and government departments. Our team takes an integrated and practical approach to applying sustainability in the property sector, ensuring that strategies and initiatives gain real traction.

Our services range from high-level strategy development to detailed technical work, supporting all project stages, from design to delivery.
