A sustainable lifestyle starts with Apartment living

A sustainable lifestyle starts with Apartment living – Chiara Pacifici, Head of Sustainability at Psaros

An apartment is inherently more sustainable than a house but initiatives built into their projects as standard, means that Psaros can significantly improve sustainability for residents: 

Psaros continue to lead in sustainable apartment development in Australia with new and innovative ways for residents to live a low carbon/low cost lifestyle. When you choose a Psaros apartment building – you’re choosing to live in an environmentally considered home; one that affords you better quality, improved performance and is a future proofed asset. You’re investing in a legacy centred around environmental sustainability.
