We believe the best urban areas are vibrant, connected and resilient.
The best urban places bring together economic, social and environmental benefits to create great places for people to live, work and visit. As the NSW Government’s urban transformation agency, it is our mission to create innovative and productive urban places with world class standards of liveability, resilience, inclusion, affordability and environmental quality.
We are well-placed to deliver these outcomes, with assistance from our development partners. We hope to create a legacy of sustainable places and cities for future generations.
OUR KEY PRINCIPLES
Leverage existing frameworks
We are leveraging existing national and international sustainability frameworks and benchmarks to ensure meaningful outcomes and comparable performance to our peers. We will leverage these wherever possible to simplify the measurement and communication of our impact.
Stay in step with advances
New standards are being created, and new boundaries are being pushed every day. Our approach to sustainability will evolve as the industry advances, thus demonstrating commitment to constant leadership and improvement.
Create a ‘new normal’
When it comes to sustainability and community, Australia has one of the most advanced and vibrant built environment sectors in the world. We will work with all key players and interested developers to provide constant coordination and leadership for the sector that leads new and better standards across the industry.
