At Wanneroo Central, we know sustainability is important for our stakeholders, from investors and tenant customers to the communities we operate in.
We’ve created a framework to help define and set specific sustainability objectives for our business. Drawing on our guiding principles, and aligned with our corporate strategy, it enables us to be more accountable and work towards delivering long-term outcomes that are positive for the communities in which we operate.
Guided by our purpose, to secure a better future for all, and through stakeholder engagement, we've identified where we should focus our environmental, social and governance efforts.
Wanneroo Central Solar Program
Charter Hall nationally have entered into a Solar Power Purchasing Agreement providing a solar energy system across 15 shopping centres including Wanneroo Central.
The PPA partnership for Charter Hall retail shopping centres have entered into with Clean Peak Energy and Macquarie Group in conjunction with Solgen Energy Group, will help realise Charter Halls’ short-term sustainability targets and contribute towards our longer-term aspirations of net zero emissions.
The project will see Charter Hall power 13MW of solar PV generation, 18GWh of electricity per annum. This is enough energy to power 1,200 homes across the 15 local Charter Hall shopping centre communities, including 100 local homes in Perth.
Charter Hall’s Sustainability Strategy for the future, is designed to reflect how our business integrates our sustainability and community goals into our everyday business practices.
