Sustainable Development PolicySustainable Development Policy

Our Sustainable Development Policy provides a robust framework for us to manage the environmental, social and economic risks and opportunities of our business decisions.

Our Sustainable Development Policy focuses on corporate sustainability in five main areas: environment; health and safety; employees; business partners; and local communities.

Objectives of the policy:

  • Long-term value creation depends on the sustainable development of our business and the communities in which we operate
  • We wish to excel as corporate citizens

Our policy:

  • Industry leadership: We will work with others to promote sustainable development in the property industry
  • Business operations: We will meet or exceed all legal requirements and:
    • Be a good steward of the natural resources and biodiversity under our influence and ensure that all potential adverse impacts our operations might have on the environment are identified and appropriately managed
    • Operate as far as is reasonably practicable in a manner which safeguards the health and safety of all our stakeholders
    • Strive to be an employer of choice by providing an environment in which all employees are treated fairly and with respect and can realise their full potential
    • Favour suppliers and contractors who promote sustainable development and encourage our customers to use of our products and services responsibly
    • Promote good relationships with the communities of which we are a part, and enhance their capabilities while respecting their culture and heritage

Making it happen:

  • We will encourage and empower our staff to be proactive on sustainable development matters both at work and in the community
  • We will encourage our suppliers to implement similar policies
  • We will monitor our performance and report our progress regularly
  • We will review this policy periodically, having regard in particular to stakeholder dialogues
