Creating sustained value

Sustainability is the lens we use to manage emerging risks and secure long-term value creation opportunities

Our Sustainability Approach informs how we create sustained value over the long-term by directing our focus towards the strategic objectives of leading cities, thriving people, future enabled customers and strong communities, and enriched environment.

We integrate sustainability into our business by taking a systematic approach that links our strategy and vision to our actions and performance outcomes, and by embedding our sustainability targets into day-to-day operations.

Dexus's science-based emissions target

In FY19 Dexus enhanced its net zero emissions ambition by certifying its emissions reduction target with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). The Science Based Target Initiative is a joint initiative by CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute and WWF, which aims to help businesses pursue bolder solutions to climate change. 

Targets adopted by companies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are considered science-based if they are in line with what the latest climate science says is necessary to meet 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.
