    Environmental Targets

    In 2020, we have announced our Environmental Targets for financial year (FY) 2030. Using FY2013 data as the baseline, our group-wide targets are to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity by 50%, energy intensity by 50% and water intensity by 30%, and to achieve at least 90% reuse of construction and demolition (C&D) materials by FY2030. These targets demonstrate our long-term commitment to being part of a low-carbon economy.

    Social Targets

    In 2020, we have introduced quantifiable social targets to promote caring and wellness by accumulating over 20 million beneficiaries by FY2030. Using FY2015 data as the baseline, these social targets could guide us in conducting our business and activities in ways that create shared value for our customers and related stakeholders.
