The CEFC has a strong track record of investing in a diverse range of cleaner, greener residential options

– including finance for green home loans, community housing, build-to-rent and masterplanned communities, seniors living and student accommodation.

Best practice energy performance initiatives give property owners and managers the opportunity to unlock substantial energy savings, reduce emissions and potentially improve liveability for tenants.

The Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council estimates that the property sector accounts for about 23 per cent of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. About half of those emissions come from residential buildings – largely from heating, ventilation and air conditioning (40 per cent), appliances (25 per cent) and hot water systems (23 per cent). Measures to address these include adopting energy efficiency building design and construction, along with supporting the widespread inclusion of renewable energy and energy storage solutions.
