Our changing world demands a different approach

Our changing world demands a different approach

FLCT recognises the importance of addressing key global environmental and social issues. ‘A Different Way’ provides the overarching strategy that drives FLCT’s approach by focusing on three core areas – Acting Progressively, Consuming Responsibly and Focusing on People. Not only do we see sustainability from risk lenses, we see it as an opportunity to enhance our resilience, provide better offerings to customers, and future-proof our business for the long term.

We are aligned with the Sponsor’s five long-term goals established in 2020:

  • To be net zero carbon corporation by 2050
  • To be climate resilient and establish adaptation and mitigation plans by 2024
  • To green-certify 80% of its owned and asset-management properties by 2024
  • To finance a majority of its sustainable asset portfolios with green/sustainable financing by 2024
  • To train all its employees on sustainability by 2021

We have established a sustainability roadmap with a clear action plan for FLCT to continue to lead the way and measure our sustainability performance1 , which includes a goal to achieve net zero carbon status by 2030.
