We are a team of sustainability professionals looking for high performing individuals to join us and help us realise this vision.

  • Smart Green Apartments – an engagement program supporting owners corporations to rate the environmental performance of apartment buildings, reduce energy and water consumption, reduce waste and improve asset management, governance and resilience in high density communities. 

The focus of all of these programs is to build capacity and accelerate action to reduce carbon emissions, water consumption and reduce waste to landfill in line with City of Sydney targets. We are looking for highly skilled professionals with the following skills:

  • Develop, deliver and evaluate strategic programs to achieve better environmental performance
