Leading Australian precincts to pilot single-use plastics initiative

PERTH, 7 July 2021 —  Two leading Australian precincts, Brookfield Place Perth and Brookfield Place Sydney, will head a national pilot by Brookfield Properties to avoid, reduce or replace single use plastics in their supply chains.

The pilot, Breaking the Plastic Habit, is already garnering big rewards with the two Brookfield Place assets set to avoid approximately 1 million single use plastics in their common areas – or base buildings – per year.

Launched to coincide with this year’s kick-off of the global Plastic Free July movement, in partnership with the Plastic Free Foundation, Breaking the Plastic Habit is a program of advocacy and action aimed at avoiding single use plastics where possible.

Brookfield Properties ESG and Innovation Manager, Danny De Sousa, said the company is proud to be moving ahead of legislation and in line with community expectations.

“Our mantra is that this is a journey not a destination,”
