All whilst Looking Out for Our Planet

Remember we left you hanging with what Balfour Homes Sales Representative, Cody McNally, had to say about what his customers love about Yarrabilba? 

“My customers love what Lendlease are proactively doing to combat climate change throughout the development and after. It’s refreshing to see a master planned estate take such consideration for the future of them and their children.” 

 

Some may say we have left the best until last… so if you thought things couldn’t get any better, let’s talk about how Yarrabilba is thinking about OUR planet and YOUR future. 

 

In 2019, Yarrabilba put in motion their Circular Economy Strategy; a production/consumption plan to reduce, re-use, regenerate, share, and recycle existing materials and products for as long as possible in order to extend their life cycle and minimise environmentally damaging output. 

 

“We are working towards new sustainability goals to mitigate the impact of climate change.”

Tony Lombardo (Lendlease Group CEO) 

Understanding the need for action against climate change and collaborating with contractors, builders and the community, Yarrabilba’s Circular Economy Strategy is leading the way amongst master-planned communities creating a new era in sustainable living.

 

Check out what this Mother Earth loving suburb has been doing to give back;

  • Planted 40,000 Pongomia trees onsite which are a biodiesel crop and will offset the diesel required to construct Yarrabilba by more than 2.5 times
  • First master-planned community to provide a fast electric vehicle charging station – offered to residents and visitors for free!
  • Partnering with local schools to deliver sustainability education programs, teaching kids about the circular food economy linking food, waste, composting and growing
  • First electric bus in Queensland which is now part of Yarrabilba’s public transport network
  • Collecting seeds and growing plants that are native to Yarrabilba and replanting them in our open spaces to enhance the biodiversity of the site
  • Reducing our reliance on fossil fuels by phasing out gas connections to residential precincts
  • Reuse resources onsite (for example soil, rocks and water) during the construction of Yarrabilba to minimise our environmental impact

 

We are all doing the best we can to consider our personal impact on the environment, thus when it comes to building a new home, knowing that where you are building, who you are building with, and how the community are positively contributing towards climate change can help you feel at ease.
