Our impact

Two female ecoDynamics nursery workers are planting seeds to add to our impact on the environment

Promoting sustainability through beautiful landscaping, high-quality products, and plant growth. We aim to make a positive difference by providing good jobs, healthy environments and supporting strong communities. Together, we’re making the world a better place.

Purpose before profit

We’re all about making the world a greener, more sustainable place for everyone by creating a lasting legacy of green spaces.

Responsibly managing our impacts is vital to success. So we’re always looking for new ways to reduce our footprint on the planet, create safer spaces, and teach young people about the importance of sustainable living.

Our ultimate goal is to help build healthy, inclusive communities where everyone can thrive. And that starts with designing landscapes that foster a strong sense of community and wellbeing.

Grassroots Impact Program

This program evaluates our impact on governance, employee outcomes, community involvement, and environmental efforts. 50% of our nursery’s profit gets donated to greening the urban environment with Greening the West.

Who we proudly support

Suppliers, you’re part of our team

Our suppliers and contractors are vital to our business, providing the essential resources and services that enable us to serve our valued customers. With nearly 1000 suppliers across three states, we prioritise fairness, honesty, and continuous improvement in our partnerships, similar to our approach with customers.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

These are 17 goals that work together to create a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet. We’ve looked at our operations and identified seven goals that are relevant to our work. Head to the official SDG website for more information.

We’ve matched our Grassroots priorities with these SDGs as follows:


Unsustainable consumption and production contribute to the triple planetary crises of climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution.

We prioritise local materials and reduce waste to combat climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution. Our goal is sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, with well-paying jobs and career paths for young people.


We prioritise gender equality by providing more roles for women in our construction business, plus a flexible work environment for students and families. We also value good health and increasing people’s quality of life, so we provide counselling and training for healthy living.


We’re taking urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts by supporting urban greening through our social enterprise.

Protecting and restoring terrestrial ecosystems is required to halt and reverse land degradation and biodiversity loss.  We grow threatened species in our nursery and plant them to reduce the risk of extinction.


Sustainable cities and communities are inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

We aim to create sustainable cities through tree planting, which reduces urban heat islands’ harmful effects and provides accessible public green spaces.
