Fashion industry insiders agree that “Green is the new Black”.
At the Fashion Capital, caring for the environment is always at the forefront.

From simple initiatives such as increased cyclist parking and change facilities through to the introduction of a new waste separation, recycling and disposal depot, Chadstone has once again taken a leadership position.

OTHER ITEMS INCLUDE
– sub metering of water and electricity usage to minimise waste
– 300,000 litre storm water recycling tanks
– centralised gas fired air conditioning plant
– variable controlled escalators and lifts for improved energy efficiency
– fire system testing water collection for recycling
– double glazing mall roof system and insulated precast panels for thermal comfort

With a commitment to environmental sustainability focusing on water preservation, Chadstone – The Fashion Capital commissioned the Yarra Valley Savewater! Efficiency Service – with Water Management Plan recommendations being implemented in November 2003.

As a result, they have now saved 30 million litres of water, a saving of 14% over the last three years (despite a foot traffic increase of 2-3% annually).This has been achieved by implementing the below simple water saving measures:

* Pressure flow control / reduction valves on all taps and faucets
* Installation of waterless urinals, replacing 30 standard urinals which will equate to a water saving of 2 million litres annually
* Installation of rain sensors, which detect when rainfall has occurred and prevents garden sprinklers from activating

In recognition of the above, Water Minister John Thwaites presented the Yarra Valley Sustainability Commendation Award “for achieving significant water savings”, to the centre on Wednesday 25 October, 2006.

Chadstone continues its strong commitment to working with Yarra Valley Water and the State Government, as we embrace Stage 3 Water restrictions.
