Woolworths at Burwood Brickworks
Finalist in the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2020 – Large Business category
Woolworths partnered with property developer Frasers to test its ability to meet ambitious sustainability standards and go beyond built form to pursue a holistic sustainability strategy across store operations.
As a tenant in Burwood Brickworks – on its way to become the world’s first Living Building Challenge accredited shopping centre – Woolworths adopted 44 sustainability initiatives with results including a 14% reduction in energy consumption compared to an average store. After the first six months of operation, 91,300kg of cardboard and 330kg of soft plastics were recovered.
