We are your strong voice. Representing the leaders of the largest industry and biggest employer in Australia, we work with our 2,300 company and business member organisations to advance our industry’s representation, reputation and impact.
A thriving property industry underpins the health and sustainability of our cities, boosts consumer confidence, enables a buoyant business environment and ultimately creates a more prosperous Australia.
Our industry creates and builds the places where people live, work, connect, learn and play.
Contributing 13 per cent of Australia’s GDP, property is the nation’s largest industry, but it also enables hundreds of other industries to thrive.
From logistics, manufacturing and mining to our small businesses, offices, shops and cafes, property is the backbone of Australia’s economy.
Every day, our industry provides jobs for more than 1.4 million Australians – more than mining and manufacturing combined.
Through our three-year strategy, we are working with members, allies, and all tiers of government to realise the enormous potential of this extraordinary industry, and our great capital and regional cities.
We have a rich, proud history of delivering outcomes that improve the lives of all Australians and create places for all stages of life, from students to retirees. We are privileged to lead the sector and connect the industry to speak with a strong, united voice.
Our powerful advocacy initiatives influence policy outcomes nationally and across jurisdictions. As respected thought leaders in the business community, governments, stakeholders and our members rely on us to lead conversations, undertake research, and solve problems to create a better future.
