305-7 Nitrogen oxides (NOX), sulphur oxides (SOX), and other significant air emissions
  In FY18 Dexus estimates it emitted the following air emissions through combustion of natural gas and diesel within generators, cogeneration engines and fire pumps: 25.8 tonnes of Nitrogen oxides (NOx), 7 tonnes of Carbon Monoxide (CO), 0.1 tonnes of Sulphur Dioxide (SOx), 1.2 tonnes of particulate matter ≤ 2.5µm, 1.3 tonnes of particulate matter ≤ 10µm, and 1 tonne of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
Sector Disclosure: Construction and Real Estate Sector Disclosures 2016 G4-CRE3 Greenhouse gas emissions intensity from buildings Enriched environment - Metrics and targets, and Group managed portfolio consumption/ emissions on an intensity basis - PP p51, 54  
G4-CRE4 Greenhouse gas emissions intensity from new construction and redevelopment activity   Not applicable. Property development is excluded from the boundary of operational control for Australia. Operational control of the development site is handed over at Practical Completion of the development. As the development activity is outside the operational control of Dexus the information required to fulfil this disclosure is not readily available.

GRI 302: Energy 2016 302-1 Energy consumption within the organisation Enriched environment - Group managed portfolio environmental inventory - PP p53-70  
302-2 Energy consumption outside the organisation   Information on upstream energy consumption outside Dexus's organisation boundary relates to energy consumed by suppliers providing products and services to Dexus. Dexus has engaged with key suppliers to request information, and suppliers have stated that energy data is not available. Downstream energy consumption relates to energy consumption by tenants occupying Dexus buildings. Dexus collects data for tenants across a proportion of properties, however this data is confidential and not for public disclosure.

GRI 303: Water 2016  303-1 Water withdrawal by source Enriched environment - Water consumption by source - PP p60  
303-2 Water sources significantly affected by withdrawal of water Enriched environment - Water consumption by source - PP p60 Water used in Dexus operations is sourced from metropolitan water authorities and is not deemed as having a significant impact as per GRI definition. Dexus operates water recycling plants at 1 Bligh Street Sydney, and 123 Albert Street and 145 Ann Street in Brisbane. Dexus also obtains water from on-site rainwater harvesting across several properties and draws water from a recharged bore at Willows Shopping Centre.
303-3 Water recycled and reused Enriched environment - Water consumption by source - PP p60  
306-1 Water discharged by quality and destination   All water from Dexus properties is discharged as sewage to water utilities, with some water recycling conducted using on-site greywater/black water plants at 1 Bligh Street Sydney, and 123 Albert Street and 145 Ann Street in Brisbane. Storm water is harvested for use on site or discharged via storm water drainage. Downstream wastewater, particularly retailers trade wastewater allowance relates to tenants occupying Dexus buildings, and is not material due to its low toxicity.
