CapitaLand is one of the first companies in Singapore to voluntarily publish its Sustainability Reports according to the Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI) Guidelines in 2009. The reports cover CapitaLand’s international portfolio and global workforce, including its six listed real estate investment trusts (REITs) and business trusts – CapitaLand Integrated Commercial Trust, Ascendas Real Estate Investment Trust, Ascott Residence Trust, CapitaLand China Trust, Ascendas India Trust and CapitaLand Malaysia Trust.
The report includes the Group’s management approach in integrating sustainability into its policies, structure, management and operations. It shares the Group’s sustainability journey, provides insights into its strategies, as well as highlights the economic, environmental and social aspects of the Group’s developments and operations.
Following the restructuring of CapitaLand Limited into two distinct business entities – CapitaLand Investment (CLI), the listed real estate investment management business and CapitaLand Development, the privatised property development arm, CLI continues to publish the Global Sustainability Report building on CapitaLand Limited’s sustainability efforts.
The latest CapitaLand Investment Global Sustainability Report 2021, continues to be prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards: Core option, apply the Guiding Principles of the International Integrated Reporting (IIRC) Framework as well as ISO 26000:2010 Guidance on Social Responsibility to this report. It also references the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) real estate sector-specific standards. CLI has voluntarily disclosed climate-related financial disclosures in four key areas as recommended by Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). All underlying systems and processes that support CLI’s sustainability framework were reviewed, and the accuracy and reliability of its statements and figures validated. The assurance engagement was conducted in accordance with the International Standard on Assurance Engagements 3000 (ISAE 3000). The assurance includes the evaluation of the CLI’s sustainability behaviour and performance, based on the AA1000 Assurance Standard.
In line with CapitaLand’s commitment to environmental sustainability, no printed copies of these reports were made. The PDF version of the reports are smart devices friendly.
