Cairns Central and Lend Lease Retail are committed to delivering a sustainable future for all our stakeholders.

Cairns Central and Lend Lease believe in creating a future where the assets we create, own and manage enhance people’s lives and allow communities to prosper and acknowledge that achieving sustainability outcomes will deliver long term value for our investors, the environment and the communities in which we have a presence.

We are implementing a number of exciting initiatives as part of our commitment to sustainability, some of which are outlined below:

Energy and Water Efficiency

In 2012 a detailed energy and water efficiency audit of the Centre was undertaken. Several initiatives were identified through the audit and an Energy and Water Efficiency Plan has been developed. The plan details what measures will give us the most energy savings down to the smaller items. We intend to roll out as many measures over the current year to significantly reduce our consumption. Other measures that are not feasible over the current year will be implemented within the next few years. Reducing our energy and consumption is a strong focus at Cairns Central.

NABERS Ratings

The owners of Cairns Central are committed measuring the energy and water performance of its assets using the National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS). Every year, NABERS Energy and Water ratings are calculated. The most recent ratings for Cairns Central are 4 Star NABERS Energy (good performance) and 3 Stars NABERS Water (average performance).

Borewater Supply

To cut down on water use, borewater is extracted from two bores located under the Premises. Borewater is currently used for toilet flushing and within our cooling towers.

Cleaning Products

We take pride in our cleaning performance in the Centre. Where possible, Cairns Central strives to use environmentally friendly cleaning products.
