Through a persistent focus on lowering our carbon footprint, strong partnerships with Social Enterprises ($400,000 spent since 2018), and constant innovation in the space of Sustainability, Chatswood Chase Sydney is always finding new ways to fulfil our ever-present goal of Enriching Community Experiences.
Sustainability is an ongoing commitment by Chatswood Chase Sydney and Vicinity Centres (our overarching property group). It is carried out in partnership with our retailers, and with the general community. Sustainability remains a constant focus for us to reduce our negative externalities and be a positive influence on the community that we are a part of.
