A global sustainability leader
A better, cleaner future for people and planet
Creating a better way to live.
At Frasers Property Australia, sustainability is embedded across our business, operations and projects through the full property cycle, from acquisition to design, delivery, operation, reporting and beyond. In 2015, we implemented our sustainability strategy, and we remain guided by this today. We have set an ambitious Science Based Target, to reduce absolute Scope 1, 2 & 3 greenhouse gas emissions 47.7% by 2028 from our baseline year (2019).
Through fostering resilient communities, carbon-reducing initiatives, responsibly sourcing services and materials, providing clean energy, using green finance and being accountable through independent tools and ratings, we contribute to a better, cleaner future.
Ambitious, because we have to be.

The Greensheet is Australia’s first comprehensive database of healthy building materials, meticulously compiled by Frasers Property Australia and made freely available for everyone’s use.
Part of our commitment to the Living Building Challenge® at Burwood Brickworks Shopping Centre in Melbourne, The Greensheet is the outcome of over 20,000 person hours spent thoroughly vetting tens of thousands of materials against strict criteria.
It is a living document, a transparent resource for all individuals and organisations, and a valuable, ongoing contribution to the regenerative buildings movement.
