Building homes to a Green Star standard

20th August 2021

Mirvac has long been committed to creating places that have a positive environmental impact, spanning both our commercial and residential developments.

Building homes to a Green star standard

We’ve partnered with the Green Building Council of Australia’s (GBCA) Green Star certification to assess our office and retail developments since 2002, with 44 of our assets Green Star rated, and an average 3 Star Green Star Performance rating across our office and retail portfolios.

 

In response to an increased focus on the delivery of healthier and more sustainable homes, the GBCA, which is currently chaired by our CEO & Managing Director, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, announced in May last year that it was pursuing an ambitious new national standard as an extension of its commercial program – Green Star Homes.

 

The new standard hinges on a singular ambition – to deliver healthy, resilient, net-zero energy homes. To aid this ambition, and in line with our own commitment to build healthy, climate-resilient homes, we are implementing a pilot at our masterplanned communities project, Olivine, in Melbourne, which will see us adopt the requirements set out in the Green Star Homes standard. As well as helping Mirvac to better understand and measure the performance of its homes, the pilot will also give us a clearer understanding of the impact we can have on the health and wellbeing of our residential customers.
