The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 Guidelines was used to prepare this report. Based on the GRI Application Level Criteria for reporting, we self-declare this report to be a Level C report. GRI has verified this Application Level. References have also have made to the UN Global Compact’s 10 Universal Principles.


Being our first report, we have attempted, wherever possible, to share 3-year statistics to cover the reporting period between January 2005 and December 2007 so as to provide meaningful data for comparison and measurement.

As this report evolves over the coming years, we will focus on improving our environmental and social data management to enhance our reporting and accountability. It is our aim to collect and compile more comprehensive data on the environmental impact and social performance of our business operations in Singapore as we continuously refine our methodology and expand our efforts.

We aim to publish this Social and Environmental Report annually.
