Across much of Australia, water is a scarce resource that must be managed responsibly.
Our Environment Improvement Program includes projects to improve our water efficiency, targeting the most water intensive elements of our centres, such as centre amenities, cleaning, air conditioning plants and food retailer usage.
We implemented a number of water efficiency measures during FY17, including the installation of high efficiency and waterless fixtures during amenity upgrades, individual metering of water intensive retailers, monitoring of water leaks and encouraging more efficient behaviours.
During FY17, our total water consumption was 2,928 megalitres, a 5% reduction from the previous year. This equates to an overall water intensity of 1.03 kL/sqm across the portfolio.
