At Align, we appreciate that all life on earth is under threat of extinction. We acknowledge that the construction industry is one of the greatest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions and the warming of our planet.
Our reason for being is to do something about it.
at Align, we see a future where every home
is making the world healthier
'business can and must be a force
for good in the world' – richard branson
At Align, we are accelerating the transition to extraordinary carbon-positive homes through the transformation of architecture and construction methods.
We will partner with the best builders globally to design and build projects that reduce the impact of the construction process through smart design, low-impact building strategies, sustainable technologies and carbon offsets. With our partners we aim to plant one million trees by 2030.
We will grow our brand worldwide and share our methodology and knowledge to build healthier homes. We will invest in, and develop, new technology and software to simplify the design and build process.
We will give homeowners a dream-home design and build experience that connects space with lifestyle, creating a greater quality of life.
We will give builders tools and systems to run a successful, positive-impact construction company to create business freedom and allow them to rediscover the love for building…for good.
Align also works towards Goals 3, 7, 9, 11, 12 & 13 of the United Nations' Global Goals for Sustainable Development, which aims to create participatory, integrated and sustainable human settlement and to protect the world's cultural and natural heritage. We are also part of the Pledge 1% movement to support nonprofits in the community.
At Align, we acknowledge that the construction industry is one of the greatest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions and the warming of our planet.
According to the UN Environment Program, the construction sector is responsible for 39% of global human CO2 emissions, while in Australia nearly 25% of greenhouse gas emissions come from the construction and use of buildings. As an industry, we must act to reduce our carbon footprint.
If you're planning to build your dream home, offsetting your construction emissions is one of the most powerful ways that you can reduce your carbon footprint. At Align, our goal is fully carbon-positive construction. We offset our carbon emissions for all our projects by planting trees, and we're on track to reach our goal of one million trees by 2030.
1 home designed =150 trees
1 home built =500 trees
1 build/design referral =50 trees planted
1 person attending workshop =5 trees planted
We partner with the TreeProject on our carbon offset program – the Tree+House Project. TreeProject has operated since 1989 as a non-profit, non-governmental, volunteer-based organisation working towards the re-vegetation of Victoria.
With over two million trees planted, TreeProject nurtures Australia's indigenous flora by connecting urban and rural communities in a joint effort to protect our fast-disappearing natural landscape.
