Our vision is to be a world class real estate investor and manager serving and improving the lives of those around us. Using our Business as Mutual mindset, we actively engage with stakeholders across our value chain to continually identify and update ourselves on sustainability issues that are material and relevant to our business. This process helps us to formulate and prioritise our sustainability focus areas under Environmental (E), Social (S), Governance (G) and to integrate these into our business activities. By setting long term targets and working on improvements and initiatives under each of our sustainability focus areas, we strive to realise our vision and to make positive impact on society and the environment.
We have identified three focus areas, each covering several key topics.
Climate and Greenhouse Gas Emissions: We recognise and support the global goal to limit temperature rise and to prepare our portfolio in the face of physical and transitional risks.
Green Buildings: Owning and operating buildings is our business, and it is through continuous improvement of the sustainability performance of our buildings as well as our management processes that we can reduce our environmental footprint and create positive impact.
Resource Management: Our buildings and operations consume natural resources. We are committed to improving resource management to support a sustainable planet.
We have identified two focus areas, each covering one to several key topics.
Stakeholder Engagement: Understanding the needs and expectations of our stakeholders and engaging with them on our sustainability journey is key to maximising value creation.
Innovation: We support innovation within the business and externally by piloting emerging technologies and supporting start-ups. We also support innovation in thought by being openminded to new ways of doing business.
We have identified one focus area, covering four key topics.
Accountability and Transparency:
We discuss our approach and progress on each of the key topics in detail in our Sustainability Compendium 2021/2022. The ESG Performance Data Tables below summarises our sustainability performance over the years.
