CapitaLand recognised for global sustainability leadership on Dow Jones Sustainability Indices

First real estate company in Asia (excluding Japan) with carbon reduction targets validated by Science Based Targets initiative towards a 'well-below 2 degrees Celsius' scenario
SINGAPORE - Nov. 16, 2020 - PRLog -- CapitaLand has been listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the ninth consecutive year, reinforcing its reputation as a global sustainability leader in real estate. Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) track the performance of the world's leading companies in the areas of economic, environmental and social factors.

CapitaLand has also maintained its listing on the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index (DJSI Asia Pacific) for the 12th consecutive year. This makes CapitaLand the first and longest standing company in Singapore to be listed on the DJSI Asia Pacific.

CapitaLand's inclusion in the DJSI is tied to the interest rates across four of CapitaLand's sustainability-linked loans totalling S$600 million. With CapitaLand maintaining its listing on the DJSI, along with the achievement of other environmental, social and governance (ESG) indicators, CapitaLand will receive interest rate savings from the reduced interest rates on these sustainability-linked loans.

CapitaLand has also retained its listing in the MSCI World ESG Leaders and MSCI World Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) Index in 2020. This is CapitaLand's seventh inclusion in the rankings. The MSCI Global Sustainability Indices are designed for investors seeking exposure to companies with strong sustainability profiles. It comprises companies focusing on products or services that contribute to a more environmentally sustainable economy by making a more efficient use of limited global natural resources.
