Our first participation in green finance
Our sustainability goal for green finance*
Total green financing raised**
*for majority of new sustainable property assets; **as at 31 July 2022
To further our commitment towards responsible investment, we issued our Green Finance Framework in 2022 to facilitate the issuance of green bonds and green loans for the Group.
This framework guides our approach towards achieving our sustainability goal of financing the majority of our sustainable asset portfolios with green and sustainable financing by 2024. Proceeds from green finance will fund real estate projects that enable reductions in energy consumption, carbon emission, water consumption and waste generation.
We will continue to monitor best practices and update the framework to reflect changes in market practice.
