Mirvac Chief to Speak on Innovation in Sustainable Development

Managing Director of the Mirvac Group, Mr Greg Paramor, will address the Bond Business Leaders’ Forum at Bond University this Wednesday evening, speaking on “Innovation in Sustainable Development”.

Once the pariah of the construction industry, sustainable development is now playing a vital role in securing the future of the development community.

Mr Paramor says that at Mirvac, sustainability is considered a journey not a destination.

“This means adopting business principles and practices that meet the needs of stakeholders without compromising resource needs of future generations. The principles of sustainable development are integral to Mirvac’s core business values,” he said.

Mirvac’s group-wide, activities-based approach to sustainability has generated significant energy savings, improved environmental and social outcomes and raised the sustainability benchmark for the development industry.

“For Mirvac, development is not just about building but creating modern lifestyles and communities, which are synonymous with the environment and eco-efficiency principles,” Mr Paramor said.

The public is invited to take advantage of the unique opportunity to hear directly from Mr Paramor - one of Australia’s foremost experts in sustainable development - and network with other business leaders, at Bond University’s Business Leaders’ Forum this Wednesday evening, July 16. The event is free to attend, but please reserve your place online at bond.edu.au/events, or by contacting Kyona Box on 5595 2278, or email: [email protected].

The Mirvac Group partnered with Bond University in mid-2006 to launch the Bond University Mirvac School of Sustainable Development, Australia’s first tertiary School formally recognising long-term sustainability as integral in urban planning, design, development and strategic asset management.
