Environment

We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and leaving a positive legacy for our communities.

As the long-term owner and operator of 42 Westfield destinations, we acknowledge the impacts of climate change and the contribution we can make in decarbonising the economy.

We own, design, develop, construct, operate, manage and market a significant portfolio of Westfield destinations and commercial assets. This breadth of functions means that our environmental impacts and considerations span the complete asset lifecycle – from concept design and construction through to ongoing operations.

Integrated Environmental Plan

Our Integrated Environmental Plan is a framework that helps us prioritise initiatives that will reduce our environmental impact. It draws on key global megatrends that are most relevant to our business: Decarbonisation, Circular Economy and Biodiversity.

To help us address these megatrends, we are focused on initiatives across five key areas that are within our sphere of control and influence. Coordinating our efforts and teams to these areas will ensure scale of impact and efficiency of resource and alignment to our net zero ambitions.

Our five key areas are:

  1. energy

  2. waste

  3. water

  4. embodied carbon

  5. reporting and benchmarking.

The Plan also references our Destination Principles. We draw upon a series of Destination Principles to inform the long-term vision for each unique Westfield destination.

Our suite of Destination Principles are focused across four areas of opportunity:

  1. Exploring boundaries between physical and digital worlds.

  2. Actively enabling wellness to support a future that makes people healthier.

  3. Sustainable communities, creating a positive impact for people and the planet.

  4. Connecting our destinations to a broader network of community spaces.
