Sustainability and environment

Our Environment Plan 2022-2030 moves us towards our ambitious goal to be carbon neutral by 2040. While our robust Environmental Management System (ISO 14001) ensures we minimise our impact on the environment, our key focus is on working with our clients, project partners and suppliers to deliver innovative solutions that help achieve our collective environmental commitments.

Our people are Green Star Accredited Associates and have helped our clients develop solutions for a range of GreenStar, NABERS, LEEDS and WELL projects. We have also worked with some of the industry’s leading sustainability innovators to achieve ‘firsts’ in a number of sustainable pioneering projects. These include:

  • Wilkhahn Sydney Show Room: the first GOLD WELL certification in Australia under the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) Retail Pilot Program.
  • Darling Island 6: The first 6 Star Green Star Commercial Building in NSW.
  • GPT workplace, MLC Centre: the first 6 Star Green Star Fit-out Rating in a building not undergoing an upgrade.
  • Australia Post (Strawberry Hills) renewal: the first project to achieve all three Green Star ratings (5 Star Green Star Design, As Built and Interiors) and 5 star NABERS Energy Tenancy and 5 Star NABERS Base Building Rating.

Off site, Buildcorp also ‘walks the talk’ with our own sustainable workplace. Our offices are powered by 100% renewable energy and have been awarded ‘CitySwitch Green Office Signatory of the Year’ and were the first property business awarded ‘Silver Partner’ status in the Sustainability Advantage program. In 2023 we received a Platinum Sustainability Rating from EcoVadis, where we ranked in the top 1% of over 60,000 participating companies globally.
