Sustainable Development Clean


We have a long and unique history of pursuing environmental sustainability.  We continue to pursue this ambition by focusing on areas of health and wellness, carbon emissions reduction, and waste management. In doing so, we expect to improve performance and meet or exceed international building standards throughout a building’s lifecycle.

Our priorities regarding Clean include:

  • Transition towards carbon neutrality
  • Build green and healthy communities
  • Reduce waste in our portfolio

2030 Targets

By 2030, we aim to:

  • - Transition towards carbon neutrality across our operations and developments
  • - Be known for our human-centric building designs that meet or exceed local and international health and sustainability standards

In 2020, our highlights include:

  • - Achieved our objective ahead of schedule to decrease carbon emissions intensity by 33.3% by 2021 
  • - 15% decrease in Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions intensity from 2019, 41% decrease from 2011 baseline.  
  • - 52% increase in overall Scope 1 carbon emissions from 2019 due to increase in property area under management
  • - 3,764 tonnes of waste diverted from landfill and sent to recycling
  • - 30% decrease in water intensity from 2019

Signature initiatives in 2021 will be:

  • - Commit to setting carbon emissions reduction goals towards 2030 using Science Based Targets that are in line with meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement – to limit global warming to well-below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C in the future
  • - Pursue dual sustainability and health certifications (WELL+LEED and/or Chinese equivalent)
