Sustainability Strategy

We aspire to create one of the greenest Green Star and NABERS rated portfolios in Australia, systematically adopting environmental, social and ethical benchmarks for the development and management of our buildings.

Cbus Property takes a holistic approach to sustainability that is aligned with our development and management strategy. Strategic objectives include the establishment of processes, action plans and sustainability targets throughout our organisation in order to deliver environmental, financial and social value to all our stakeholder groups.

Our culture of delivering sustained value relates to three key objectives:

Key Objectives

Developing and Managing Buildings

Cbus Property occupies an enviable position within the Australian property industry as one of only a select few landlords that actually design and develop all the buildings within their property portfolio.

Our extensive experience and technical expertise ensure buildings are actively developed and managed, so as to operate at their optimum level. The seamless alignment of our resources across our development and management business drives design innovation that produces efficiency outcomes well beyond current industry standards.

Responsible Investment

Cbus Property is responsible for the strategic performance and management of the entire Cbus direct property investment business – with responsible investments across commercial, residential and industrial sectors.


Cbus Property occupy an enviable position within the Australian property industry as one (of only a select few landlords in Australia) that designs and develops all the buildings within their property portfolio.

We continually seek creative solutions to all aspects of our buildings operational, aesthetic and occupancy elements actively driving the innovation process to absorb any new available technology or occupancy trends to accommodate not only the performance requirements of the Cbus Property brand but also those occupancy expectations of our tenants to ensure Cbus Property are delivering the places of the future for our office and residential occupiers.

Innovation Research

We scrutinise each project completed by Cbus Property to look at which design initiatives produce the best outcomes, and what can be improved. This process of improvement is applied to our existing development pipeline to ensure every advantage is gained on behalf of every future development.

A 5 Star NABERS rating was once an aspirational goal, today we are see a 6 Star NABERS rating as becoming the new benchmark as technology, design and management expertise continues to evolve, Cbus Property will continue to lead the industry in sustainability developments.

Cbus Property applies an outwards looking management approach to manage its environmental design challenges and performance risks embedding sustainability into every facet of our development business producing a range of innovative design practices such as:

  • Orientation influenced building design.
  • Low heat load façades.
  • Post project completion design reviews.
  • Modular micro tri generation plants.
  • Adaptive VSDs and smart pumps in plant and equipment.
  • New world lighting solutions.
  • Super web smart metering portfolio platforms.

As an integral part of our developments, Cbus Property also align our management teams with our development teams during the design and development process to ensure that all the operational and post completion sustainability expertise are applied to each new design to ensure that every possible enhancement of value can be applied to not only the design but the manner in which the building’s will be ultimately managed.

Cbus Property encapsulates sustainability innovations within all aspects of the management of our buildings such as:

  • Whole building tenancy sustainability conferences.
  • NABERS occupancy meetings established during construction.
