Leaders In Sustainability
For us, sustainability is about using what we need to live now without jeopardizing the future. A sustainable building will not only meet best practice in design and construction, it will also stand the test of time.
We are proud to be one of Australia's leading sustainable development companies, responsible for many new ecological practices. Our thorough approach to social responsibility is demonstrated in our three sustainability pillars - Think, Talk and Walk Green, Green Targets and The Next Green Frontier:
The quality of the Leighton Groups sustainability practices have been recognised with the inclusion in two of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, “DJSI Asia Pacific” and the “DJSI Australia”, a measure of the performance of the worlds sustainability leaders.
