CapitaLand China Trust - Sustainability Report 2021

Board Message SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY Since the onset of COVID-19, we have stepped up engagement with all stakeholders, ensuring strict compliance with advisories, laws and regulations to safeguard the health and safety of all. This includes increasing the frequency of disinfection and sanitation measures across all CLCT’s properties and distributing masks to our tenants and customers. Recognising the impacts of COVID-19 on jobs and livelihoods, Ascendas Xinsu Portfolio collaborated with professional recruitment platforms to conduct annual offline recruitment drives in the park focusing on the modern service industries, including but not limited to information technology, software development, environmental protection and energy conservation. The event was recognised and supported by the Secretary of the Party Working Committee of the Dushu Lake Science and Education Innovation Zone, which is one of the key education hubs in Suzhou. OUR SUSTAINABILITY MILESTONES AND ACCOLADES In September 2021, CLCT obtained its maiden sustainability-linked loan of S$150 million and is the leading REIT in Singapore to pioneer a sustainability- linked loan for a China portfolio. We are honoured to be conferred a GRESB 3 Star Rating and a score of 77 for our first participation in the GRESB Real Estate Assessment 2021, a global ESG performance benchmark for real estate.
