Investa are the first property group in Australia to commit to net zero carbon by 2040.
INVESTMENT AND OUTCOME
TFC was engaged to complete a whole of portfolio whole of life cycle carbon footprint assessment and to model scenarios across scope 1, 2 and 3 to identify development, churn and operational settings to contribute to the 2040 net zero aspiration. TFC’s online building and precinct life cycle carbon calculators were used to achieve the whole portfolio assessment and then model mitigation scenarios within the context of forecast tenancy churn, development and operational capex.
TFC’s building life cycle software was used to quantify the footprint of a proposed new development and develop pathways to mitigate impact. These outcomes were converted into a carbon development performance brief.
BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER
TFC was instrumental in helping Investa determine their next stage on their sustainability journey, to lead the way in sustainable office real estate. Both our expertise and Footprint Calculators were used to help achieve a 12% reduction on the first pilot project, and many more in the future.
