LJ Hooker and Sustainability
Recent data shows buildings contribute up to 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions. We are doing our part in reducing the impact that property has on the environment and our communities.
LJ Hooker’s Corporate head office is working closely with the City of Sydney to develop an Energy Action Plan to reduce our long term energy use as part of City of Sydney’s CitySwitch program, Australia’s leading tenant energy efficiency program. We have already achieved a17% reduction in energy use surpassing our 5% target and introduced the LJ Hooker bike share scheme for our staff.
