How Sustainability Can Boost Property Value & Reduce Outgoings

Join us for a two-part webinar series that explores the significant impact operational enhancements, green upgrades, and building improvements can have on strata levies, capital value, and higher rental yields.

Our panel, including Andrew Buchel, NABERS, Ethan Burns of Sustainability Now, Brent Clark from Wattblock, Chris Munro from the City of Sydney, Marie Xanthos of Water Efficiency Programs Sydney Water, and Wendy Showyin from the OCN, will share expert insights and practical strategies that can be undertaken to promote your strata community’s financial and environmental sustainability. 

With energy bills at an all-time high and numerous grants and financial incentives available on a state and local council level, the payback period for investing in more sustainable energy equipment and practices has never been shorter.

The trend towards sustainability is not merely an ethical choice but a financially strategic one, with clear financial rewards, making it an essential consideration for anyone involved in strata ownership.
