We understand the crucial role the construction industry has to play in addressing our global carbon crisis. With the global population on the rise and floor area set to increase by 100%, we must all strive to design and build ecologically friendly and energy-efficient buildings that will have a positive impact on our planet. We stand behind the World Green Building Council’s Global Commitment for Net Zero Carbon Buildings, and are committed to playing our part in this journey, to ensure a brighter outlook for future generations.
Our environment is our responsibility.
At Camillo, we accept our responsibility to address climate change and resource depletion ad are committed to the challenge of reducing the carbon footprint of the buildings we create. Our in-house accredited professionals are experienced in design optioneering, and carry out in-depth testing at the beginning of each project to analyse both the embodied and operational carbon implications of different solutions. By targeting reduced carbon strategies early in the design and procurement process, we can then generate embodied carbon road maps and life cycle analysis to establish baselines and optimise targets.
We are committed to the Global Net Zero Carbon Buildings initiative, to play our part to ensure a brighter future for all.
We conform to the 3-point green concrete capability as per the rigorous Australian standard for sustainable concrete.
In 2020, as part of our sustainability mission, we equipped our Port Melbourne site with 100KWH solar power system representing 35% of our electric power consumption.
Global Net Zero Carbon Buildings
In 2018 the World Green Building Council launched the Global Commitment for Net Zero Carbon Buildings, which challenged industry to get to net zero by 2030. Decarbonising the built environment will take leadership and engagement across all disciplines. We are committed to play our part in this journey as this will ensure a bright outlook for our future generations.
In the last two years we have transitioned 20% of our vehicle fleet to hybrid/ electric with more to come.
Sustainability in action
The London – 92 Beach Street Port Melbourne
This sustainable building design was optimised to ensure high levels of visual comfort to building occupants. The project adopted a glare reduction strategy that incorporated a mixture of shading devices and low visible light transmission glazing. This enables building occupants to take advantage of the stunning external views on offer in this prime location.
Highpark Seasons - 1559 High Street, Glen Iris
This building project makes a concerted commitment to health and well-being by utilising a number of environmentally sustainable design initiatives. Over 30% of the site is covered in vegetation and more than 90% of living rooms and bedrooms achieve best-practice daylighting levels. The project also includes a Photo Voltaic array to offset base building loads and has an average 6.8-star energy rating.
Camillo - Operations
We love to lead by example, so we’ve also implemented carbon reduction measures in our own backyard - namely, within our vertically integrated supply chain.
Vehicles: In the last two years we’ve transitioned 20% of our vehicle fleet to hybrid/electric, with more to come.
Precast and Concrete: Our Port Melbourne site has a 100KWH solar power system, representing 35% of our power consumption.
Office: We transitioned our headquarters to natural cleaning products to reduce chemical waste.
Concrete: Our concrete has 3-point green capability, as per the Australian standard.
