Sustainability is at the core of the vision for Hobsonville Point

Since its inception, Hobsonville Point has been guided by a Sustainable Development Framework designed to ensure that we’re working as one towards our vision:

“To build a strong, vibrant community that sets new benchmarks for quality and accessible urban development with an environmentally responsible focus.”

When you hear the word ‘sustainability’, your thoughts might turn to the environment. But while environmental considerations are a critical part of the Sustainable Development Framework, it also encompasses economic, social and cultural objectives. We like to think that we were ahead of our time in shaping a practical framework for a sustainable development in this way!

We’ve been measuring our progress against the framework for the past ten years. You can read the latest report here, or take a look at a few highlights from the 2017/2018 year below.

Katja Lietz, General Manager, Masterplanning and Placemaking, talks about what makes our homes and neighbourhoods great to live in.
