A spokesperson for Lend Lease, said:

“At Lend Lease, we work with communities, clients and our colleagues to create positive legacies from funding a project right through to developing and constructing state of the art buildings and infrastructure, including hospitals, roads and bridges. We also create vibrant residential communities, productive workplaces and retail destinations.

“Our projects span all key sectors from retail and commercial to residential and infrastructure across Australia, Asia, the Americas, Europe and the Middle East. We’re also working with governments across the world to deliver ambitious infrastructure development projects across sectors such as health, transport infrastructure, defence and education.

“Using a truly collaborative approach, we guide clients and investors beyond just maximising value to innovative, sustainable solutions. Wherever we operate, we combine a wealth of global expertise with best practice project management and a strong understanding of local markets. We work in partnership with our clients, stakeholders and the wider community to deliver projects with the best possible outcomes for everyone.

“The principles of sustainability have always defined the way Lend Lease does business and they matter more today than ever. Our approach is grounded by sustainability aspirations across environmental, social and economic categories. We use effective governance, clearly defined global standard and regular reviews to prevent pollution. Rather than shying away from environmental restoration we welcome it as an opportunity to innovate to evolve and improve. Now and into the future, we strive to do meaningful work that protects our natural environment, supports responsible economic growth and improves the quality of people’s lives.”
