Frasers Property conducted an assessment in 2015 within the business to determine the sustainability topics most relevant to us. As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, we support their adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and have mapped the Sustainable Development Goals to our business operations for alignment.
Our Sustainability Steering Committee (SSC), chaired by our Group CEO and comprising top management, provides guidance and drives our corporate sustainability agenda. To ensure that the progression of our sustainability efforts is on the right track, the SSC meets to review performance against our sustainability objectives.
Supporting the SSC is the Sustainability Working Committee (SWC), which consists of members from the middle and senior management of various business units and departments. Its main task is to monitor our sustainability performance against key performance indicators and implement action plans.
We continually look for opportunities to reduce our consumption of the earth’s limited resources and preserve them for the next generation. We have committed to achieving an energy and water-efficient portfolio, and are working towards managing waste generation and disposal processes at our properties.
In addition to improving our operational efficiencies, we believe that the design of a building directly affects its performance and indirectly encourages sustainable behaviour in its occupants. Frasers Property therefore employs innovative methods and techniques to create positive and enabling spaces at the development stage. We also adopt technologies in the energy sector to help us meet energy challenges quickly.
Being respectful of laws, regulations and needs of society is key to being a good corporate citizen. We recognise the benefits that clear policies and good management bring to our business and we strive to maintain high standards of integrity, accountability and responsible governance.
Frasers Property is a signatory to the Corporate Governance Statement of Support since 2015, and a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact since 2016. We have a zero-tolerance approach towards corruption and fraud. We also strive for zero incidence of non-compliance with all laws and regulations.
