Introducing a Circular Economy 

Communities are starting to understand the need to move to a circular economy. At Yarrabilba, this means reducing waste, recycling more products, reliance on cleaner power and regenerating our environment. We first launched our Circular Economy Strategy in 2019 and have been recognised as an industry leader within master planned communities. We have embarked on a series of initiatives with contractors, builders, and the community to help turn waste into future resources creating a new era in sustainable living.

Planted 40,000 Pongomia trees onsite which are a biodiesel crop and will offset the diesel required to construct Yarrabilba by more than 2.5 times

First master-planned community to provide a fast electric vehicle charging station – offered to residents and visitors for free!

Partnering with local schools to deliver sustainability education programs, teaching kids about the circular food economy linking food, waste, composting and growing

First electric bus in Queensland which is now part of Yarrabilba’s public transport network

Collecting seeds and growing plants that are native to Yarrabilba and replanting them in our open spaces to enhance the biodiversity of the site

Reducing our reliance on fossil fuels by phasing out gas connections to residential precincts

Reuse resources onsite (for example soil, rocks and water) during the construction of Yarrabilba to minimise our environmental impact

Awarded a 6-Star Green Star Communities rating in 2017, which is world’s best practice in sustainable development
