Sustainability in the Built Environment

It's not just about the environment; when seen through the lens of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals, sustainable urbanisation needs to include a range of additional elements including:

  • safe, accessible and affordable housing
  • equitable access to health and education
  • sustainable employment and wages
  • disaster resilience
  • efficient public transport
  • sustainable production and consumption
  • innovation and sustainable industry.

Doing business for good is good for business

Sustainable development is not only an opportunity to contribute to a sustainable future for people and the planet, it is also good for business! Consumers, employees and government are all demanding a commitment to these goals, businesses who embrace them, take action and report progress will have a competitive advantage.

Why is sustainable development important to associations?​

Larger corporates and multinational organisations are already reporting on ESG (environment, social and governance) outcomes, but there is a significant opportunity for an association to support their small business members to understand, take action and expand their contribution beyond a pure environmental focus to include social, ethical, and community sustainability.
