1. Commit

Commit to achieving net-zero operational carbon emission for new and existing wholly-owned assets under direct operational and management control. Maximise reduction in embodied carbon and compensate for any residual upfront emissions via offsetting for new developments and major renovations.

2. Disclose

Measure and publicly disclose scope 1 and 2 emissions, embodied carbon emissions and energy consumption through annual reports. Assess annual asset and portfolio energy demand and carbon emissions against set targets.

3. Act

Reduce energy consumption for construction and operations of assets, through implementing energy efficiency measures and explore switching to 100% renewable energy through on-site production or procurement of clean energy e.g REC. Adopt sustainable building designs, materials and supply chain practices to reduce upfront embodied carbon, and offset any residual upfront emissions.

4. Verify

Demonstrate enhanced energy performance, reduced carbon emissions and progress towards net-zero carbon assets via third-party certification by aligning with recognised and industry leading local third-party certification and verification schemes. Verify and report lifecycle assessment for embodied carbon at asset level for new developments.

5. Advocate

A longstanding green building and sustainability champion, CDL will continue to engage and influence value chain and key stakeholders, to support and build towards a wider transition to a net-zero whole life carbon built environment.
