Goodman’s business strategy recognises that to become a truly sustainable, resilient, and low carbon real estate provider we need long-term thinking guiding our actions.
As a leading real estate investment vehicle our focus is on the built environment and the delivery of sustainable property solutions for our customers. We are committed to minimising the impact of our commercial activities and protecting the natural environment to the extent we can.
We understand the world is changing rapidly and to be part of the future we must remain agile and open to new technologies and alternative ways of working. We’ve set a plan and committed to clearly defined targets to ensure that we are providing our people and our customers with the spaces they need to succeed. We are equally focused on our investors, contractors, consultants, and service providers, capital providers, industry bodies, regulators and other community partners, with a sustainable business model that will deliver positive results for all stakeholders, today and into the future.
We are also asking our supply chain partners to join us on our sustainability journey. Procurement contracts are requiring that they prove this commitment to secure our business.
