Investa Property Group

Investa Property Group is one of the leaders in the environmental management of buildings and for actively addressing climate change. They are the first property group in Australia to commit to net zero carbon by 2040.

The Footprint Company was engaged to complete a whole of portfolio whole of life cycle carbon footprint assessment. 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.

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 over 3 million kg of carbon reductions, and Investa are on target to achieve their net zero goal.
