Goodman’s business strategy recognises that to become a truly sustainable, resilient, and low carbon real estate provider we need long-term thinking guiding our actions.
The three pillars of our sustainability framework include:
We’re challenging ourselves to do better, and do more for the benefit of all, across each of these areas. To learn more about our progress view our 2022 Sustainability Report
Goodman's commitment to sustainable development includes the recycling and repurposing of demolition materials across all its brownfield redevelopment projects.
So when Mainfreight at Favona is complete it will be a carbon neutral development and is expected to achieve a 5 Green Star Built rating.
At Goodman, we make space for greatness - your greatness. So we’re working hard to make all of our new property developments carbon neutral by using lower carbon materials, more efficient building techniques and then offsetting any unavoidable carbon.
We are shooting for 5 Star Green Star too - to improve your building’s energy efficiency and reduce water usage. Lowering your carbon footprint and improving your workplace for the wellbeing of your people. Are you ready to take the next step to sustainability?
The Green Star rating system is independent certification from the New Zealand Green Building Council, that assesses the sustainability attributes of new developments. It is widely regarded as the quality benchmark for commercial buildings.
To ensure its facilities are industry leading Goodman are targeting a 5-Star Green Star rating for all new developments.
With the built environment responsible for between 15% and 20% of all New Zealand’s carbon emissions Goodman is working hard to reduce the emissions from its development activity.
This means using materials and building techniques that reduce emissions and managing the development process to reduce waste and other environmental impacts. Any carbon embodied in new builds is also being offset, extending our carbon neutral commitment.
With high-quality Green Star rated workspaces and extensive amenity planned, the new warehouse and logistics facilities at Roma Road are expected to deliver wider benefits for the businesses that choose this inner city location.
Sustainable design, focused on the wellbeing of the occupants, will create healthy, productive workspaces that are unrivalled in our market
