CDL’s value creation business model is anchored on our ethos of “Conserving as We Construct” since 1995. The model encapsulates our role as a developer, an asset owner and a corporate citizen, and guides us in creating sustained value for our business and our stakeholders. As an early adopter of sustainability and ESG reporting, CDL’s robust sustainability reporting has evolved into a unique hybrid model using GRI Standards as its core since 2008, IIRC’s Integrated Reporting Framework since 2015, SDG Reporting since 2016, TCFD framework since 2017, and SASB since 2020. CDL’s ISR 2021 is assured against the CDSB framework, complementing CDL’s unique blended reporting framework that addresses the increasing and more diverse demands for corporate ESG disclosures by investors and stakeholders.


The CDL Future Value 2030 sustainability blueprint was first published in our ISR 2017, which sets goals for our integrated sustainability strategy towards 2030—a milestone year for sustainable development and the global climate agreement.

Since July 2017, we also voluntarily publish an online quarterly sustainability report that updates stakeholders of our progress towards key goals and targets set under the sustainability blueprint.
