Future Enabled Customers and Strong Communities

Building constructive, enduring relationships with our customers, communities and suppliers to create value. 

Our capacity to create value depends on how well we support customer success, the strength of local communities and the capabilities of our suppliers


We understand the importance of high-performing workspaces for customer productivity and business success. We focus on maintaining high levels of customer satisfaction by listening to our customers and understanding their needs. Our comprehensive workspace offering provides advanced products and services that enable our customers to succeed today and into the future.

The relationships we build with local communities are critical, as these communities visit our properties and deliver the activity and vibrancy that makes them leading destinations. We support our retail centres to act as community hubs, providing the gathering space essential for community cohesion and wellbeing. 

We partner with our suppliers to achieve operational efficiencies, enhance customer amenity and deliver strong sustainability performance. We focus on worker health and safety and assist our suppliers to manage more complex risks in our supply chain.

Leveraging our portfolio for STEM education


An industry partnership initiative that actively promoted Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to girls through experiencing a live build at Dexus’s 100 Mount Street, North Sydney (100 Mount) has encouraged girls to consider a career in property. 

STEM industries are vital to Australia’s economic growth however women are significantly under-represented in STEM education, comprising just 16% of those with STEM qualifications. STEM+ is a partnership initiative of Dexus, 100 Mount’s builder Laing O’Rourke, and project delivery partners Rider Levett Bucknall and Savills.
