SDG 11.6 Reduce adverse environmental impact of cities

The Group strives to avoid, reduce and, where possible, reverse the causes of climate change across its operations. We achieve this by identifying pressing global environmental issues and using a life cycle approach to minimise impacts across our ecosystem.

Energy and Carbon Management

We strive to reduce our carbon footprint throughout our property lifecycle. While we work towards our SV2030 energy and carbon emissions intensity reduction targets, we are also exploring viable ways to further decarbonise under the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C scenario. This means reducing our emissions through energy efficiency improvements as well as considering viable renewable energy opportunities.

Waste Management

Waste management is a challenge across the globe, particularly in areas with high-density development and rapid urbanisation. We’re committed to avoiding and reducing waste across our building lifecycle.
Read More

Water Resource Management

The Group recognises that water is a constrained but essential resource to the sustainability of our business and wider society. We are committed to managing our water consumption and potential risks throughout the building lifecycle.

Biodiversity Protection

Major biodiversity loss and ecosystem collapse are one of the top five global risks for the next ten years. Extraction of natural resources and pollution are among the key drivers of biodiversity loss, with severe implications for the economy and public health and well-being, as well as for our supply chain. We hope to protect biodiversity by enhancing our operations and raising public awareness.
