Managing Material Aspects

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines prescribes organisations to disclose details of their approaches to managing material Aspects identified through the materiality process and reported under the Specific Standard Disclosures within their GRI index. These Disclosures on Management Approaches, or DMAs, are intended to give the organisation an opportunity to explain how the economic, environmental and social impacts related to material Aspects are managed.

DMAs provide narrative information on how Dexus identifies, analyses, and responds to its actual and potential material economic, environmental and social impacts. DMAs also provide context for the performance reported by Indicators.

Dexus views many of its material Aspects to be interrelated and has prepared five DMA documents addressing its Specific Standard Disclosures:

  1. Tenants and Customers
  2. People and Culture
  3. Supply Chain
  4. Governance
  5. Environment

Each DMA describes the relevant material issues, Dexus's governance structure and management approach to address these issues, stakeholder engagement and continuous improvement processes.
