Sustainability Index: Mirvac #1

31st January 2018

Mirvac Group has been named the world’s most sustainable real estate company by the globally renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the first time.

The DJSI RobecoSAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment is the most widely accepted global evaluation of how companies from all industries deliver strong environmental, social, and governance outcomes. It assists ethical investors in directing their choices.  
Mirvac’s CEO and Managing Director, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, said, “We are very proud to have our long-standing commitment to sustainability recognised by the DJSI RobecoSAM assessment. We’re striving to make a real and measurable difference as a leading Australian company.  

“The result demonstrates our whole-hearted commitment to sustainability in its broadest form, which provides real value to our communities, customers, partners and investors.” 

Mirvac's overall score of 83 per cent was nine points higher than Australia's real estate average and ten points higher than the global real estate average.  

The top ranking was underpinned by Mirvac’s comprehensive understanding of the importance of its contribution to the communities in which it operates. Mirvac aims to create the greatest lifestyle benefit for residents, which means it includes facilities and infrastructure (like bike paths, footpaths and parks) to encourage people to be more active. 

Mirvac’s focus on renewable energy was also highlighted in the Dow Jones assessment. From solar panels and batteries installed on apartment rooftops to living laboratories monitoring real families and their energy consumption Mirvac's commitment to helping clients generate more energy than they use is unwavering.
