CONSERVING AS WE CONSTRUCT

SINCE 1995

In the age of a climate emergency, the global race to net zero emissions has never been more urgent. With buildings and construction accounting for some 40% of global emissions, the built sector is pivotal in the transition towards a low-carbon future.

In February 2021, CDL became the first real estate developer in Singapore to join the World Green Building Council’s Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment. With unwavering leadership commitment from the Board and top management for over two decades, we are poised to forge ahead in the new climate economy and build a better world for future generations.

Aligned with global climate goals, the blueprint has remained effectively integrated into our business strategies and operations despite unprecedented challenges in 2020 posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
