Dexus retains global ESG leadership across real estate sector

Dexus is the only real estate company globally to achieve an S&P Global Gold Class distinction in the S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook 2022 released today. Dexus outperformed 569 real estate companies in the S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment for the third consecutive year and has been included in the 2021 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI).

Dexus scored 90/100 in the 2021 assessment, well above the industry average of 27/100, ensuring Dexus retained a place on the coveted DJSI World index which tracks the largest and leading sustainability driven publicly listed companies.

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.

Darren Steinberg, CEO at Dexus, said: “We are proud to have been recognised as the best in the world for Real Estate in the S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook for the third year running. The breadth of categories where we lead the industry gives us the confidence that we are on the right track and this confirms our approach in managing ESG issues.”

David Yates, Executive General Manager, Sustainability said: “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 have built on the progress we’ve made over the past 10 years and have set new targets to help further progress our 2022 net zero emissions ambition.”

Dexus led global real estate participants on individual assessment themes including Risk & Crisis Management, Environment Policy & Management Systems, Environmental Reporting, Occupational Health & Safety, Social Integration & Regeneration and Social Reporting.
