OUR SUSTAINABILITY JOURNEY
Sustainability is an integral part of Sunway REIT and the enlarged Sunway Group’s DNA. Being one of the largest REITs in the nation with sizable portfolio of properties, embracing sustainability practices has come a long way. Our sustainability strategies embedded into the business operations, as demonstrated by the efficiency in our building management and array of social community activities in the past decades.
Our sustainability journey has been enriching for the past 3 years. Since initiating our sustainability reporting three years ago, we recognized the importance of instilling the right sustainability culture that starts within the organization where we initiated employees awareness projects for employees, Facilities Management Team and hotel operator to align Sunway REIT’s sustainability objectives and goals.
With conscious strategy, our aim is to prioritize development of sustainability programmes that is self-sustained over one-off activities as we believe this will lead to positive economic, environmental and societal impacts. In this financial year, we revitalised our sistainability strategies to focus on material sustainability initiatives aligned to the 17 United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (UN SDGs) that generate lasting and measurable impacts. We further enhanced the date collection process to achieve the measurability and veracity of the value creation in our sustainability programmes.
INTEGRATED APPROACH TO SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING
Our sustainability reporting is principally guided by Sustainability Reporting Guide in accordance with the Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad Main Market Listing Requirements and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, a globally recognized sustainability framework.
A year ago, we have incorporated the UN SDGs into the report with our key sustainability initiatives attached to the identified UN SDG.
