Material Topic Disclosures

This section of the site contains the Material Topic Disclosures made by Dexus.

In September 2015, the United Nations member nations voted to adopt a 2030 agenda for sustainable development; a plan of action to transform our world by 2030 for the benefit of people, the planet and prosperity.

The United Nations has outlined 17 Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs that seek to resolve the most pressing issues facing society, including extreme poverty, hunger, climate change, with the goal to heal and secure our planet.

We acknowledge that we are part of this collective journey and have mapped reviewed our material issues against the broader SDGs to identify those that are most relevant to our activities as an organisation and our geographical area of operation.
