To the building managers of Strata Schemes FM sustainability is not just tokenstic or a politically correct inclusion. Having an awareness of the negative impact building structures and the humans that live within them cause to our environment is a key concern to us and we believe should be to everyone.

It is a responsibility we do not take lightly and one which informs our decisions on a daily basis.. Our company policy, education of those whom we work alongside of and our directives address minimizing our ecological footprint by embracing and engaging in sustainable practices.

Sustainable or green buildings are defined by the Green Building Council of Australia as a building that incorporates design, construction and operational practices that significantly reduce or eliminate its negative impact on the environment and its occupants. A sustainable building not only uses resources efficiently but creates healthier environments for people to live and work in.

Our environmentally sustainable practices which include:

  • Complying with legal and other commitments and agreements relating to environmental waste management;
  • Actively promote and encourage the adoption of ecologically sustainable work practices and operations;
  • Preventing the pollution of the environment as a result of our work practices and operations;
  • Continually improving performance and find opportunities for environmentally positive contribution;
  • Use materials and resources efficiently; and
  • Favoring the purchase of more sustainable goods and services where possible and within reasonable cost.

Our Facilities Managers pride themselves as being individuals who take responsibility in their daily lives and reducing the consumption of water; reuse and recycle, where possible, minimise waste-to-landfill; minimising energy use where possible.
