Acting on Climate Change

Hesperia is the first Western Australian based property group to be certified as a carbon neutral Organisation by Climate Active.

A Federal Government initiative, Climate Active certification is the established national standard for carbon neutral claims.
This certification covers Hesperia’s operational emissions as part of our commitment to addressing our impacts on climate change.

You can find out more about what this certification means for Hesperia here.

 

Hesperia starts the planning and design process by assessing the best ecological outcome for a site and responding to that.

Finding ways to achieve the outcomes that assist in shaping the future of our city without sacrificing our desire to make the most of the natural environment within each site is a key objective that we apply across our residential, commercial and industrial projects.

Sustainable resources are those that come from natural, renewable cycles.

We are seeking to have all of our projects operating with renewable energy from on and off site sources. In WA, our energy grid needs support, so we add energy storage and other strategies to transition to a more stable, renewable energy powered grid.

We use the most appropriate water source for irrigation on our sites, rather than relying on precious mains water.

We are developing our construction methods including low carbon concrete mixes, applying recycled materials in an expanding range of uses, and are on a journey to ensure our supply chains are best practice.

Hesperia has adopted a comprehensive sustainability strategy to guide our projects from the earliest planning to final delivery.

Moving forward, we will be seeking accreditation through third party frameworks such as Green Star, EnviroDevelopment, and One Planet Living. Our corporate operations have policies to support diversity, gender equity and Indigenous reconciliation.

Sustainability must be part of the economy and the way we do things.

We are developing business units to pursue renewable energy, construction waste recycling and carbon farming projects with Indigenous groups and intend to continue diversification over time.
