In recognition of Landcom’s continued advancement in integrating sustainability into business as usual activities the NSW Minister for Environment and Energy presented Landcom with a Bronze award in June 2019 as part of the Sustainability Advantage Recognition Scheme. The award honours significant advancement within the first year of joining the Sustainability Advantage program run by the NSW Office of the Environment and Heritage.
The award was strongly influenced by Landcom’s Sustainability Rebate Scheme on the Macarthur Heights project launched in 2019 which is designed to encourage individual home owners to build more efficient, healthy homes for themselves and the environment.
The Office of Environment and Heritage’s criteria for recognition rest upon participating organisations achieving progress in the following areas:
Active participation in the program
Demonstrated leadership and commitment to sustainability
Established planning and management systems for environmental practice, including processes for continuous improvement
Engagement: Promoting sustainability practices internally among staff, and externally with suppliers, customers and the wider industry
Achievements: Demonstrated environmental outcomes in the last 12 months.
Landcom sees strong benefits in participating in the program to advance shared knowledge and learning with parts of industry we would not normally interact with, gaining direct access to Office of Environment and Heritage programs, participation in leading thinking which aligns with Landcom’s objectives and access to resources to support Landcom’s Sustainable Places Strategy priorities.
We are committed to ongoing participation in the Sustainability Advantage program and will strive to further embed innovative sustainability initiatives across our business.
