Sustainability Focus

Tue., 07 January, 2020

The R2P Project is always looking at ways in which we can make a difference with implementing sustainability principles.

A recent success story was the construction of the office compound car park at 36 Hudson Avenue, Croydon Park.

To seal the car park, we used 100% recycled materials. This meant we were able to save 9.4 tonnes of carbon dioxide. This is equal to removing 9 cars off the road!

Instead of disposing waste to landfill, we re-used the following materials in the sealing process:

  • 110,000 plastic bags.
  • 324 kg of recycled canola oil.
  • 2,500 printer cartridges.
  • 207 tonnes of recycled asphalt.

Thank you to one of our site engineers Laura, who partnered with Downer Group to create and implement this sustainability initiative.
