Strategic Advisor

Every business is deeply intertwined with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concerns, none more so than businesses within the real estate industry given that buildings contribute 40% of global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.

As a solutions provider to clients who occupy and own buildings, we are committed to sustainable practices across all aspects of our business and helping clients with their own ESG journey, irrespective of where they may be on that path.

Leveraging our global Open Innovation Platform, we represent
GIGA here in Australia.

​Founded in 2008, GIGA is an international organisation headquartered in Québec, Canada, with offices in the U.S.A and Asia Pacific. Entirely cloud-based and data driven, the RESET Standard, the ORIGIN Hub and MATTER are used by global real-estate.

GIGA’s platform of standards and software tools serve as an ERP solution for building owners and occupiers, working with Accredited Professionals to track, benchmark and communicate ESG results of real-estate with actual performance data.

We are RESET and NABERS accredited professionals. 

The RESET Standard is the world’s first sensor-based and performance-driven data standard and certification program for the built environment. The RESET Standard consists of five stand-alone standards: Materials, Air, Water, Energy, and Circularity. They are modular and can be implemented separately or together depending on the needs of the project.

NABERS is a national rating system that measures the environmental performance of Australian buildings and tenancies. Put simply, NABERS measures the energy efficiency, water usage, waste management and indoor environment quality of a building or tenancy and its impact on the environment.

We proudly support Backpack Bed for Homeless

​​Being part of the real estate industry, we are doing our small part to help those that are homeless and proudly support Backpack Bed for Homeless.

Backpack Bed for Homeless provides emergency relief Backpack Beds and Fire Retardant Polar Fleece Sleeping Bags to homeless people. They work in partnership with over 800 homeless agencies across Australia to reach homeless people who do not have any other form of accommodation.
