Sustainability is a key consideration in our development, property management and funding decisions. Our commitment to sustainability is driven by long-term value creation for all stakeholders.


Sustainability and Goodman Australia

Goodman Australia has adopted the sustainability policies and practices of the ASX-listed Goodman Group. 

Goodman is the largest listed industrial property group in Australia and one of the largest listed specialist fund managers of industrial property and business space globally.

Our sustainability strategy is reviewed regularly to ensure it supports, and is aligned with, Goodman’s overall business strategy. It is structured around four key areas that encompass a series of activities and objectives that address Goodman’s material sustainability priorities. These four areas include:

  • Sustainable development – continual improvement in the sustainability of our developments, through innovation and working with customers to evaluate and incorporate design initiatives.
  • Asset management – managing and investing in our assets to improve efficiency, long-term competitiveness and resilience.
  • Corporate performance – measuring our impact, improving our overall performance, managing our compliance obligations and engaging regularly with our key stakeholders.
  • People and community – inspiring and challenging our people, and supporting various community based groups through the Goodman Foundation.

Sustainability framework

Goodman’s sustainability framework is based on embedding specific practices in all of our countries of operation, supported by key representatives in each region and specific tools and processes across Goodman.

Goodman’s sustainability framework encompasses:

  • An ongoing commitment to support Goodman’s long-term business model
  • Engaging with our supply chain to encourage sustainable outcomes
  • Partnering with Government for policy initiatives that encourage industry wide participation
  • Participation in industry bodies to increase sustainability awareness and shape government policy
  • A commitment to strive for continual improvement in our own business
  • Goodman’s sustainability framework will continue to evolve over time, incorporating our changing business and stakeholder expectations, and will continue to focus on our customers’ own sustainability priorities.


Sustainable approach to development

Innovation and environmental sustainability in our developments is an important consideration for Goodman and our customers.
