Our investment

The CEFC provided $39 million in debt finance to the Pro-invest Group development of the Holiday Inn Express Melbourne Southbank hotel, which is targeting a 5 star National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) Energy rating.  

As part of the CEFC finance, Pro-invest Group is lifting the design standard for the project, ensuring the latest clean energy technologies are included from the construction stage. These design changes are targeting a 25 per cent drop in the hotel’s energy use, delivering a substantial energy saving that will provide ongoing benefits for the hotel, carbon-conscious guests and for the environment. 

Our goal is to work across the entire property sector to deliver lower carbon emissions. Through our investments we are providing real life examples to property developers of how and where new technologies can deliver the most value. There is no question that investments in clean energy technologies offer real and lasting benefits across the property sector.
