The property industry shapes the places in which Australians live and work. It also is home to Australia’s largest workforce and has far-reaching and elaborate supply chains. Given the scale of its impact, socially, economically and environmentally, the property industry is in a unique position to improve people’s lives.
The Property Council and our members are determined to lead the conversation about delivering positive change through social sustainability in Australia’s property industry.
For this reason, the Property Council’s National Social Sustainability Roundtable spearheaded the establishment of a Collective Social Impact Framework as a way to assess and quantify these efforts across the sector. The Framework will enable voluntary reporting on actions and initiatives underway by member organisations. Members can leverage their current efforts by reporting against the Framework which has been mapped against, and aligned to, existing industry standards.
Information from the Framework will also deliver consolidated industry insights on the range of social initiatives across the Australian property sector for benchmarking and advocacy.
