Sustainability Index: Mirvac #1
Mirvac Group has been named the world’s most sustainable real estate company by the globally renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the first time.
“The result demonstrates our whole-hearted commitment to sustainability in its broadest form, which provides real value to our communities, customers, partners and investors.”
Mirvac's overall score of 83 per cent was nine points higher than Australia's real estate average and ten points higher than the global real estate average.
The top ranking was underpinned by Mirvac’s comprehensive understanding of the importance of its contribution to the communities in which it operates. Mirvac aims to create the greatest lifestyle benefit for residents, which means it includes facilities and infrastructure (like bike paths, footpaths and parks) to encourage people to be more active.
Mirvac’s focus on renewable energy was also highlighted in the Dow Jones assessment. From solar panels and batteries installed on apartment rooftops to living laboratories monitoring real families and their energy consumption Mirvac's commitment to helping clients generate more energy than they use is unwavering.
Mirvac acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters of Australia, and we offer our respect to their Elders past and present.
