Depending on what specific initiatives have been achieved, EnviroDevelopment can increase your property value. As every development is different, it is best to talk to your developer directly about what initiatives have been included that can contribute to a property price increase.
The process to maintain EnviroDevelopment certification includes a yearly review of the development, to ensure it is still meeting its sustainability requirements This process is very important to make sure that we can continually bring the project up to a sustainable level. Sustainability is ever evolving, so it’s important large projects, that can take years to complete, are continually improved.

As the bar for sustainability consistently rises, we are constantly updating the National Technical Standards to ensure that each development has gone above and beyond. We undertake a large review with experts across Australia every three years.
The EnviroDevelopment program is governed by the National EnviroDevelopment Board. The Board consists of experts from across Australia, that meet monthly to review and certify developments.
Our projects page shows all our active projects that still hold certification. Alternatively, if you can’t find what you are looking for then you can contact us and we will happily provide further information.

Each EnviroDevelopment certified project will include initiatives that can reduce the cost of living in your home or tenancy. This can be done a number of ways including energy and water saving initiatives. However, it’s important that you consider your energy and water usage to make sure that you are optimising the sustainability features of your home. To find out more about the sustainable initiatives of a specific project that could reduce your cost of living, get in contact with the developer of the project, or contact us.
If a certified project fails to comply during the annual audit project, we give the developer every opportunity to rectify the issue. If this is unsuccessful then the National Board will strip the project of an element or its entire certification.
