Being in business purely for profit is not what we’re about. We see the bigger picture and believe we all need to work together to achieve a socially and environmentally brighter future – for everyone.
To achieve this, Hazelwood Homes supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: “The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.”
~ United Nations
We’re committed to these goals in three important ways:
Constructing sustainable and resilient buildings using local materials when available
We are proud to be a registered Housing Industry Association (HIA) GreenSmart Builder. This means that members of our team have undergone professional training in environmental solutions for residential design and construction with Australia’s peak home building and renovation association. Our clients and the environment benefit from Hazelwood Homes up to date knowledge and research about the latest environmentally responsible design ideas, building techniques and materials.
Optimising opportunities to reuse, recycle or reprocess building waste
We work hard to divert as much waste from the building process away from landfill as possible. We’ve partnered with Mobius Materials Recovery to implement a waste management system on our building sites that tracks the amount of materials sent for reuse, recycling or reprocessing. Our aim, is to maximise the amount of building waste that can be reused, recycled, or reprocessed. We think that’s a win for people and planet and that’s what we’re committed to.
Supporting the provision of safe and affordable housing for people in need on the Mornington Peninsula
Housing for all is something that we’re passionate about. In July 2020 Hazelwood Homes partnered with Peninsula Community Housing to support their quest to bring social and affordable housing to the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula.
At present, homelessness is a significant and increasing issue on the Mornington Peninsula. There’s rising unaffordability for buyers and renters, low-income groups are in housing stress and the waiting list for social housing is only growing.
As part of our commitment to positively impact society and the environment, we are contributing funding and expertise to help make Peninsula Community Housing’s vision a reality. When clients choose Hazelwood Homes as their builder, they too become part of making this happen.
