Sustainability has become a catch-all term over the years. Everything that has to do with socially responsible living, the environment, ecology and future-oriented thinking is referred to as ‘sustainability’ nowadays. For Upgrade Estate, sustainability is a mission, a way of living, thinking and doing. We approach the concept of sustainability very broadly.
