Mirvac clears out unused lockers in support of homeless youth
Mirvac has recently removed a number of unwanted items from one of their office assets, 380 St Kilda Road, Melbourne. Mirvac decided to use the Property Industry Foundation’s Furniture Fund as a platform to minimise the impact on the environment and giving homeless youth in need, a second chance.
Mirvac is driving their ‘This Changes Everything’ sustainability strategy which has a target to send zero waste to landfill by 2030. Egans who is the removalist partner of the Furniture Fund provide a sustainability report stating the total amount of kg’s that have been diverted from landfill as a result of their donation.
Through the Furniture Fund, Mirvac was able to get rid of their unused furniture turning 23 grey steel cabinets and 14 lockers into a $2,650 donation to the Property Industry Foundation.
On top of the social and environmental benefit from Mirvac’s actions, the Furniture Fund was a quick and painless solution to a usually long-winded cumbersome task.
“Very easy. After requesting an inspection of the lockers, PIF’s removal partner Egans picked up and removed from site within days, shortly after we received a summary of the asset and the value.”
“It’s great to know that the funds will be used to build houses for young Australians who need a helping hand to change their path.”
