Abstract

The Australian shopping-center industry has begun to embrace corporate social responsibility, particularly as it relates to sustainability. This article traces some examples of how the industry has sought positive environmental, social and cultural solutions to mitigate adverse impacts from retail development and operations in the nation. A lesson from this experience is that a developerís best practice should take a "whole-of-life" or lifecycle approach in setting standards and measuring success.
