In 2017 we opened our 5-star Green Star Distribution Centre in Australia.
The building is three times the size of the previous distribution centre but uses the same amount of energy. The incoming goods platform faces east to avoid bad weather while the office area is orientated to the north to capture natural light.
Building materials are chosen for their lower life cycle impacts. Storm water is captured to supply amenities and to irrigate surrounding landscaping.
Solar panels and insulation reduce the amount of energy needed. Ventilation, natural light and noise control all help make the indoor environment more pleasant.
Green buildings are one way we're minimising our operational footprint. Discover how we're aiming for zero waste.
