We love creating places to explore, escape to, or simply dwell in.
Our stores are designed to emanate a sense of luxury and comfort, without coming at the expense of our planet.
In August 2019, we opened our first 5 Star Green Star Design Review rated store at Chadstone, which is certified by the Green Building Council of Australia. It’s the very first fashion retail 5 Star Green Star Design Review rated store in Australia, marking an important milestone for us and the Australian fashion retail industry.
The Green Building Council of Australia assesses the sustainable design, construction and operation of buildings through an internationally recognised rating system.
Choosing Green Star helps to create a healthy place for people to work, as well as minimising our environmental footprint.
This store follows the 2015 launch of our 5 Star Green Star rated Omni Fulfilment Centre in Truganina. This centre was the first industrial facility of its kind in Victoria, incorporating a number of eco-friendly features like solar panels, natural lighting and rainwater harvesting.
The Chadstone store was also built with a number of sustainable attributes, which we plan to replicate across more stores moving forward.
- Australian parquetry flooring recycled from old buildings
- Fixtures made from recycled yoghurt containers
- Fitting room hooks revitalised from ocean plastic
- Carpet and rugs made from fishing nets
- Wall cladding made from recycled paper
- Store fixtures and tables crafted from recycled plastic
Country Road collaborated with a number of local and global sustainable designers to bring this store to life.
It’s our hope that this innovative retail space will inspire others to follow in our footsteps and grow the industry.
