RP Infrastructure’s Sustainability Focus

At RP Infrastructure (RPI) we’re conscious of our responsibility to minimise our environmental impact. Since 2010 we have offset emissions produced in the running of our business by investing in accredited renewable energy projects around the world.  In Financial Year 2022 we achieved Climate Neutral Status, but we recognise that this is one step in RPI’s ongoing sustainability journey. Along with offsetting emissions, we’re also looking at emissions reduction strategies which are essential to limit the effects of Climate Change.


Our project history displays our commitment to minimising the impact of the construction industry on the environment and, we support our clients in achieving their sustainability goals on projects. Where our clients elect to, we measure sustainable building initiatives through NABERS, the Green Building Council of Australia and the Passive Haus Institute.


Projects that we have supported with strong sustainable goals include: Monash University’s Woodside Building for Technology and Design which is the largest Passive House certified building in the Southern Hemisphere; Health Infrastructure’s Eurobodalla Regional Hospital, participating as a pilot project for the Connecting with Country framework; and the Melbourne Market Authority’s Solar Canopies project and Hydrogen Hub feasibility.


We have also worked with the Victorian School Building Authority to implement Passive House Principles on primary school projects and we are supporting the implementation of Deakin University’s Sustainable Built Environment principles on a range of projects which are part of the Victorian Higher Education State Investment Fund program.


With the UN calling for a transition to a circular economy and accountability at all levels we are reminded that every action we take, as individuals and as a business, can make a difference.
