"At Lendlease this is what sustainability has always been about - getting it right for people. Which means getting it right for the environment, for society and for the economy."

Leaving a positive legacy

We recognise that the benefits of sustainable development must extend beyond a reduction in the environmental footprint to deliver places that: are more operationally efficient; focus on human health and wellness; and are designed and built to be more resilient to maintain value over the longer term.

Climate Change and the Environment

We also have the aim that all the buildings and communities we produce and operate are independently rated as achieving green building status. We are designing  and building places with lighter environmental footprints by  using more renewable energy and materials with lower energy impacts.

Healthy Buildings and Communities

Globally, there is a wellness and mobility transformation in the built environment, meaning the buildings and communities we create need to respond by delivering healthier outcomes for the people who use them. This includes an ongoing focus on designing for indoor environment quality, as well as innovating through procurement and operating policies and  procedures.

Resilient and Affordable Communities

As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, we remain committed to the continuous improvement of our operations. We are also focusing on our value chain in the areas of human rights, the environment, anti corruption and responsible labour practices.

Community Engagement

Community creation and social value are at the heart of our approach to sustainability, along with the understanding of how to direct our efforts and measure our impact. When Lendlease’s pillar of values are deployed, we create the best places that offer economic, safe and sustainable outcomes for our customers, our communities, our people and our securityholders.
