We will form partnerships with others from industry, universities and government to fund and deliver solutions to these challenges. This will involve piloting solutions in both Landcom projects and where feasible, in our partner’s projects, monitoring outcomes and sharing the findings with research partners, government and industry more broadly to drive meaningful change.
Partner with NSW Government agencies, Councils and State Owned Corporations
To pilot new policy and accelerate delivery of priorities E.g. Form agreements with Councils for the installation of air quality and urban heat monitors in Landcom developments
Council partnerships that leverage Government grants
Mutually beneficial research that aligns with funding available to Councils E.g. Partnership with Campbelltown City Council awarded grant for energy sharing research
Leveraging existing industry memberships
Consultancy funding and building on industry knowledge
membership supporting development of a carbon footprint calculator
Releasing market challenges to industry
To encourage innovation and leverage industry research E.g. Smart Energy Precinct Pitches
The FY23 research program will prioritise investments that support meeting the Climate Resilient Places goal in our sustainability strategy, being to enable carbon neutral, zero waste, water positive and net positive biodiversity outcomes by 2028. The new approach to research will prioritise projects that align with Landcom’s Strategic Directions and demonstrate relevance across multiple Landcom communities and the broader industry. This includes investigating ways to demonstrate leadership in housing diversity and affordability across our communities.
