Dig a little deeper into the history Stockland Group and you’ll realise they are not your typical property group. On the contrary, rather than pouring all their energy into earning profits for their board, Stockland Group is first and foremost a provider for the community. They manage a diversified property group that supports the lives of countless Australians, owning retail town centres, offices, logistics, residential communities and retirement living.
Stockland Group is all about providing balance: socially, environmentally and commercially for the benefit of its shareholders. But it’s the focus on creating healthy and liveable communities that is most admirable in an enterprise as large as Stockland. Just last year they invested $8.3 million into community initiatives and a further $286,000 in community grants through its dedicated Stockland CARE Foundation.
Climate change is top of the agenda for Stockland Group – and they’ve set ambitious targets they are confident they will reach. This includes a further 60% reduction in carbon emissions by financial year 2025 – on top of their 60% reduction since 2006. The Group also understands the strength of renewables for our future. That’s why in the 2019 financial year they generated nearly 13 million kWh of solar power through its portfolio’s solar panel capacity.
Stockland is able to walk the walk, which is why the accolades arrive thick and fast. They are the only Australian property group on the Climate A List for carbon disclosure and performance. Moreover, they have ranked as the most sustainable real estate company in the world for five years in a row and have been featured in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for 12 years.
Exuding the same values and ethics as we do here at Crescent Wealth, Stockland Group is a powerful figure in the property sector – more importantly, they are a powerful figure doing good for our community and our environment.
