ESG Strategy


In 2019, we developed our ESG framework, which organises the topics identified as material to our business into three key pillars: Human-Centric, Property Portfolio and Corporate Performance.

Three key pillars

  • Safety, Health and Wellbeing
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Community Investment
  • Talent Attraction, Retention and Training
  • Stakeholder Engagement
Property Portfolio
  • Climate Change Resilience
  • Sustainable & Efficient Operations
  • Biodiversity & Habitat Protection
  • Human-Centric Design, Flexible & Adaptable Properties
  • Strategic Locations
  • Sustainable Building Certifications 
Corporate Performance
  • Financial Results
  • Responsible Investments/Financing
  • Corporate Governance
  • Risk Management
  • Disclosure & Reporting
  • Investor Relations


We are committed to working closely with all our stakeholders – both internal and external – to achieve shared business goals that also align with our core values. Constructive and effective stakeholder engagement, integral to our daily business activities, can improve our environmental, social and corporate performance.

Property Portfolio

ESR constantly demonstrates environmental stewardship by developing and maintaining sustainable and efficient buildings.

We optimise the sustainability features of our new and existing logistics facilities through green design initiatives wherever possible. For instance, we position our properties strategically to enhance co-benefits such as minimising impacts on land use change and biodiversity, while providing sustainable development opportunities for local communities.

Through innovations like energy-efficient lighting, intelligent water management, waste recycling measures or roof-mounted solar panels, we are able to reduce the operating costs of our customers as well as our own impacts on the environment.

In addition to fulfilling local health, safety and environmental regulations, some of our facilities take compliance one step further by obtaining certification in accordance with globally recognised standards, such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and the Comprehensive Assessment System for Built Environment Efficiency (CASBEE) in Japan.

Corporate Performance

We put in place stringent measures to protect the reputation of the Group and everyone who works with us – such as thorough systematic integrity check of our employees, suppliers, customers and capital partners – and refraining from dealings with any third-party associated with organisations or countries that are restricted by law or sanctions.

We are committed to investing responsibly, which requires incorporating ESG factors into all investment decision-making and active ownership of our assets.
