Dexus named Global Industry Leader in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index

Dexus has been recognised as the most sustainable real estate company in the world for the second consecutive year in the 2020 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), outperforming 247 other real estate companies to achieve Global Industry Leader status.

The DJSI is one of the longest standing Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) indices, based on a corporate sustainability assessment that evaluates the practices of companies worldwide and identifies those that are best positioned to address sustainability challenges and opportunities into the future.

Dexus scored 89/100 in the 2020 assessment, well above the industry average of 30/100, which ensured Dexus retained a place on the coveted DJSI World index. The DJSI World index was the first global index to track the largest and leading sustainability-driven publicly listed companies.

Dexus led global real estate participants on individual assessment themes including Materiality, Risk & Crisis Management, Environmental Reporting, Environmental Policy and Management Systems, Operational Eco-Efficiency, Building Materials, Social Reporting, Human Capital Development, Corporate Citizenship and Philanthropy, Occupational Health and Safety, and Social Integration and Regeneration.

David Yates, Executive General Manager, Sustainability said: “We are proud to have been recognised once again as the best in the world by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. The breadth of categories where we lead the industry gives us the confidence that we are on the right track when it comes to managing material environmental, social and governance issues.

“We have delivered on our ambitious 2020 sustainability targets that were set in 2015, which build on the progress we’ve made over the past 10 years and have set new targets to help further progress our 2030 net zero emissions ambition.

“Our Sustainability Approach is focused on the effective integration of ESG factors across our business operations to manage risk and generate long-term value for Dexus and our third-party capital partners. We look forward to our continued participation in the DJSI assessment to progress and evolve our Sustainability Approach.”
