EnviroDevelopment is a scientifically based rating tool that makes it easier for purchasers and tenants to recognize and select more environmentally sustainable homes, workplaces and lifestyles. The program originated in Queensland where it has been operating for seven years; projects have been rolling out in other states since 2009 and there are now more than 60 accredited projects across Australia.
On October 2 the successful EnviroDevelopment program became established in the Northern Territory, with the certification of the Osborne Family Holdings “The Avenue” project in five categories (“leaves”) of environmental excellence.
UDIA (NT) understands that another Darwin project is close to certification and that other developers are also keen to pursue EnviroDevelopment certification.
