At Highlands Marketplace, we know sustainability is important for our stakeholders, from investors and tenant customers to the communities we operate in.
We’ve created a framework to help define and set specific sustainability objectives for our business. Drawing on our guiding principles, and aligned with our corporate strategy, it enables us to be more accountable and work towards delivering long-term outcomes that are positive for the communities in which we operate.
Guided by our purpose, to secure a better future for all, and through stakeholder engagement, we've identified where we should focus our environmental, social and governance efforts.
We've Gone Solar!
Highlands Marketplace is now partially powered by clean energy thanks to our recent solar installation. This is off the back of Charter Hall nationally entering into a Solar Power Purchasing agreement providing a solar energy system across 28 shopping centres including Highlands Marketplace.

Highlands Marketplace Community Contribution
In Good Hands - The Two Good Cookbook Campaign
From October 17th - 26th 2019, Highlands Marketplace invited shoppers to cash in their receipts when they spent $30 in a specialty store or $80 in a major store to receive a complimentary Two Good Co Cookbook with all proceeds from the Cookbook providing direct funding of the Two Good Work Work Program.
The total value of the 250 Two Good cookbooks purchased by Highlands Marketplace enabled the Two Good Work Work to continue their mission of spreading love and respect to all, while continuing to build employment pathways which supports, trains and employs women from domestic violence safe houses who prepare cookbook meals, which are then distributed to shelters around the country.
Love Another Mother - Mother's Day Two Good CampaignFrom May 3rd - 9th 2019, Highlands Marketplace invited shoppers to share their favourite memory with their mum on Facebook for the chance to receive 1 of 70 Two Good Co Care Packs to gift to their Mum for mother's day. For every comment shared by shoppers, Highlands Marketplace delivered a care pack to women living in a local domestic violence refuge on Mother's Day. Highlands Marketplace donated and delivered 70 care packs to a local shelter and raised awareness of domestic violence in the local community.
Dam Good - Drought Relief Campaign
Late last year, 20 of our shopping centres, including Highlands Marketplace, hosted our ‘Dam Good’ drought relief campaign, collecting $196k in funds for drought affected Aussie farmers within our local communities.
Craig Marsh, Business Development Manager Rural Aid said “Thanks to the generous donation of Charter Hall and their shoppers, Rural Aid has been able to deliver approximately 800 large bales of hay, equating to 27 semi-trailer loads and 50 truckloads of water, approximately 180,000 litres each drop across 20 farming and rural communities.”
