Recognising the business risks of climate change, the Manager has taken steps towards integrating the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (“TCFD”) recommendations into our sustainability reporting. In 2021, we conducted our first climate-related scenario analysis to identify potential climate-related risks around OUE C-REIT’s operations that have business implications.

The Manager also works closely with the property managers and tenants to improve the energy efficiency of OUE C-REIT's portfolio to align with Singapore's low carbon emissions strategy, as well as exploring renewable energy options to support the global effort to transform into a net-zero economy. On top of energy efficiency measures, the Manager also focuses on other environmental indicators such as water efficiency and proper waste management measures at OUE C-REIT's properties, in recognition of the importance of good resource management and resource efficiency to water- and land-scarce Singapore.

Since 2021, the Manager has started rolling out green lease clauses in tenant lease agreements which provide for the management and improvement of the environmental performance of OUE C-REIT's properties. Tenants are committed to provide relevant environmental data to OUE C-REIT, as well as to work in partnership with the Manager to reduce the environmental impact of the buildings we own and occupy.
