The AVID commitment to you and our environment

We understand that moving to an AVID Property Group (AVID) address means more than having beautiful surroundings. It’s also about peace-of mind, knowing that your new home and community have been created with the wellbeing of future generations and the environment in mind. That’s why we work together with designers, planners, builders and, of course, our residents to be as environmentally sustainable as possible and create places we can all be proud of.

EnviroDevelopment certification is Australia’s leading independent environmental accreditation program for new property developments around Australia.

Established by the Urban Development Institute of Australia, their assessment recognises outstanding performance in key sustainability categories. Multiple AVID communities have achieved EnviroDevelopment accreditation, ensuring we have met the standards across Ecosystems, Waste, Water, Materials, Energy and Community categories. When you choose an AVID community you can expect to live in an address that has been designed and delivered sensitive to the natural environment.

Sustainability at Covella

We are proud that Covella has achieved the ‘Five Leaf’ national EnviroDevelopment certification in masterplanned communities from the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA).

Manage waste carefully

We take every consideration to ensure good management of waste. From recycling of construction material, minimising on site pollution to reducing waste to landfill.

Use energy thoughtfully

We take steps to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) production across the development, over and above current regulatory requirements.

Use materials sensitively

We carefully consider and encourage use of more local, recycled and re-used building materials to ensure our communities are brought to life with as little environmental impact as possible.

Conserve and re-use water

We work to protect and enhance existing native ecosystems, encourage natural systems, native biodiversity, and rehabilitate degraded sites wherever possible.

Grow community spirit

We take every measure from planning to implementation to nurture more vibrant, cohesive and inclusive communities and encourage the growth of neighbourhood spirit.
