We build sustainably
At Hacer, we value the social wellbeing of the communities we work in.
That’s why we embed sustainability in everything we do.
From planning and design to building and maintenance,
we’re leading the way in sustainable construction –
without compromising quality or operation.
We're serious about sustainability.
BURWOOD BRICKWORKS SHOPPING CENTRE
Branded as the ‘world’s most sustainable shopping centre’, Burwood Brickworks proudly sits in Green Star’s ‘world leadership’ category.
And in 2020, it won the Master Builders Victoria Excellence in Construction Awards for the Best Sustainable Project.
We’re prioritising partnerships with clients who focus on sustainability – like Nightingale.
Nightingale Village consists of six individual projects combined into 1 development, and incorporates energy-efficient and sustainable design principles across the site and in each building.
Learn about our work on Nightingale Village, awarded the 2023 MBV ‘Best Sustainable Project’ Excellence in Construction Award.
To extend our impact across the construction industry, we’re working with our stakeholders to:
Ensure a high standard of sustainable design and construction
Shift to low or zero-carbon construction materials and energy generation in our projects
Support our supply chain to reduce their carbon footprint and environmental impact
Deliver leading waste management practices to reduce waste sent to landfill
We're locally and internationally accredited
The Hacer EHS Management System is accredited under ISO14001. And our projects regularly exceed NABERS and Green Star ratings.
We set goals and measure our progress
We track vital metrics – like our carbon footprint and percentage of waste diverted from landfill – to ensure year-on-year improvement.
We've built sustainability into our values
To elevate our commitment to sustainability – and keep it front of mind – we added sustainability as a core business value in 2022.
OUR SUSTAINABILITY FRAMEWORK
Hacer’s Sustainability Framework outlines our four big goals to improve sustainability across
operations and culture by 2026:
Actively manage and reduce our carbon emissions
Reduce waste year on year
Become known for our sustainability commitments and achievements
Collaborate with our clients and supply chain to maximise sustainable outcomes
The Sustainability Framework is endorsed by our Board of Directors, implemented by our Green Team, and monitored by our Sustainability Manager.
As a living document, it undergoes continual improvement to ensure our efforts are always in line with best practices.
