LJ Hooker and Sustainability
One of our 2015 goals is to build a rich and sustainable future, together. Therefore LJ Hooker embraces it's environmental responsibility as an essential part of our business operations and our customer service. As an industry leader, LJ Hooker is committed to the implementation of innovative, sustainable practices across the company, through the participation of our corporate staff, our partners and our franchise offices across Australia and New Zealand.
At our corporate sites and our network of offices sustainability and efficiency go hand in hand.
Our Head office
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.
We have an active group of passionate people who have banded together to form the LJ Hooker Green Guerillas to assist in helping us achieve our targets.

In all of our corporate offices across Australia and New Zealand, our sustainability programs have already achieved the following results:
• 100% recycled paper for office printing
• Comprehensive recycling program
• Monitoring and reporting on power, paper, petrol and carbon emissions
• Our entire company car fleet has been moved to Toyota hybrids
Your local LJ Hooker Office
To assist our 700+ franchise offices identify and achieve their own sustainability objectives, we have created an industry-first sustainable office initiative called The 3Ps Program. Launched in January 2012, the 3Ps was piloted with some of our top performing offices in order to develop a program that aligns with our existing operational imperatives. By reducing the usage of the 3Ps, Power, Paper, Petrol an office not only reduces its overheads but also lessens its impact on the environment and its community.
Seeing it all add up
Each of our offices in Australia and New Zealand can use the 3Ps dashboard, powered by CarbonSystems our preferred technology partner for the 3Ps Program, to monitor and manage power, paper and petrol usage. Our customised 3Ps dashboard has also been installed at all corporate offices so that LJ Hooker can quantify our carbon emissions on a national level.
Each of our lives are characterised by different habits, jobs and lifestyles as well as environments in which we live, work and play... so why shouldn’t living sustainably be approached in the same way?
