Building for the future

Our sustainability focus is to ensure that the communities we create today contribute to a better future – for our residents, our guests, our investors, our team and society.

In creating new communities we have the greatest ability to understand and influence environmental outcomes.

Since entering the lifestyle communities sector in 2013 and undertaking our first development, we have continued to evolve the homes and communities we create. This focus encompasses not only the built form, but the social benefits of community living and the financial benefits of an affordable home.

We announced a target of carbon neutral for all future developments and have already made progress on evolving our building program with key initiatives including:

  • Preparing to build our first home under the GBCA Green Star for Homes Early Access Program at Ingenia Lifestyle Plantations. The Green Star homes have a net zero energy target.
  • Utilising the GBCA communities rating tool to target a 6-star Green Star rating for the Fullerton Cove greenfield development. This will enable benchmarking of sustainability practices in our master-planning, design, and operation of greenfield communities in the lifestyle portfolio.
  • Trial of battery technology at Ingenia Lifestyle Hervey Bay as we explore our options towards a low-carbon pathway.
  • Continuing with the rollout of solar installation and LED lighting.
  • Installation of first ModnPods at Ingenia Holidays Byron Bay, which will provide for a modular and healthier holiday cabin, while delivering enhanced environmental outcomes.
