Lendlease Investment Management are hosting our first customer summit in 2022, between 5th and 8th September. Throughout the week we are bringing together leaders in their fields to debate how we can collectively simplify and accelerate our transition to zero emissions. This is a challenge that we know requires collaboration across industries and sectors, and the summit creates a unique opportunity for us to learn from each other, and hopefully build new partnerships.

As part of the summit, we have partnered with Wilderlands to show how individuals and businesses can engage differently to support biodiversity and conservation of nature. We have purchased an allotment of Biological Diversity Units (BDUs) equivalent in size to the event spaces our summit takes place in. We will share these with our customers and partners so that we can each engage with the value that nature can bring to business.

Crowes Lookout

Home to mountainous vistas, tall trees, and fern-rich gullies, lies Crowes Lookout, only 170 kilometres south-west of Melbourne near the scenic town of Lavers Hill in the Otway Ranges. Crowes Lookout is characterised by towering trees of Mountain Grey-gum (Eucalyptus cypellocarpa), Southern Blue-gum (Eucalyptus globulus), and Messmate Stringybark (Eucalyptus obliqua), reaching over 60 metres tall and providing an arboreal ecosystem of micro-bats, gliders, and birds.

Budgerum

In the heart of the Victorian Riverina, one of the most productive areas of agriculture in Australia and only 250 kilometres north of Melbourne, lies Budgerum, a farming district of flat, grassy plains alongside the Avoca River. Grassland communities are some of the most highly threatened ecosystems on the planet, with grassland reserves being reduced to small, fragmented patches across the landscape as land has been converted to agriculture. For this reason, protection of the remaining native grasslands across the Victorian Riverina is critical to the long-term survival of species that call this community their home. Examples of species dependent on these grassy ecosystems include the critically endangered Plains Wanderer and the nationally endangered Turnip Copperburr.

Coorong Lakes

Located in Meningie in South Australia, this 200 hectare landscape is a project delivered in partnership with the Ngarrindjeri people, the Traditional Custodians of the Coorong. It sees native plants supplied by the local nursery at Raukkan, a self-governed Aboriginal community 30 km northwest of the site and many Raukkan community members employed for onsite work and delivering activities such as vegetation monitoring and mapping and fencing with a focus on ensuring these communities can continue to preserve and protect this culturally important pocket of land.
