Green leadership for Sydney’s commercial and public buildings
A group of Sydney’s leading public, private and institutional landlords are working together to make the city’s buildings more sustainable.
Led by the City of Sydney, the partnership aims to address the challenges facing the commercial property sector and help Sydney become one of the world’s top sustainable cities. The collaboration aims to:

- Engage with regulators and governments on key environmental policy and regulatory issues.

- AMP Capital Investors
