Ready Reckoner

Driven by the global megatrends of sustainable development, urban densification and connected technology, Australasia’s strata industry is facing a period of significant change and opportunity.

SCA defines sustainable development as an approach to managing the built environment that balances economic, social and environmental benefits.

The only way to make significant and lasting change is to ensure sustainable development works for all stakeholders in the strata ecosystem from owners, residents, strata communities and developers to service providers, employees, strata community managers, government and industry associations.

Underpinning our vision are the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.

The strata industry and strata management sits at the heart of the built environment cycle, as we interact with surveyor, planners, waste management services, insurance, transport, trades and many others and presents us with an opportunity to deliver meaningful change in this space.

Doing business for good is good for business and SCA’s goals for sustainable development and management within the strata industry are fourfold, to make strata liveable, efficient, green and smart.

What is SCA doing to involve Corporate Business members?

There are two ways, linked together, that members can get involved and tailor our efforts to their particular business or service.

The first is to take 20 minutes to take our ‘Ready Reckoner’ evaluation, by visiting SCA’s website. The survey will ask you specific questions about your business or service to evaluate how you are tracking against the United National Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a way that is relevant to strata across Australasia.

At the end of the 20 minute survey, you’ll immediately get an evaluation that you can use to understand your business better in the light of sustainable development and evaluate any potential changes and actions you may be able to take to improve them.

The data from the survey will contribute to a set of data that SCA will use as a whole to evaluate the industry and advocate to government and tailor future member activities and programs.

The second way is to sign on to the Declaration to Commitment to Sustainable Development that we have developed with the specific context and goals of the strata industry across Australia and New Zealand in mind. You’ll be able to display this digitally and physically to your clients so they can see that commitment.

How they link is that the Ready Reckoner survey comes first, and then you can decide, based on your answers and better understanding of SCA and the industry’s sustainable development goals, to sign the declaration.

So, visit the website today and start your journey with us to drive sustainable development in strata, and in Australia.
