Studies have shown that a company’s ability to grow its earnings increasingly depends on intangible assets such as the quality of management, brand equity, natural, human and intellectual capital. A company’s financial capital and its position in the market depend on its ability to generate competitive advantages and create economic value for its stakeholders and society at large.

Sustainability trends such as climate change, resource scarcity and demographic changes shape the competitive environment in which companies operate by introducing long-term sustainability opportunities and risks. We therefore view our business performance beyond short-term gains and the financial bottom line. Our conviction is to achieve a balanced triple bottom line for sustained growth.

In today’s highly volatile business environment, CDL has, beyond sustained earnings, diligently embraced prudent financial management, capitalised on our assets and investments, and remain focused on growth strategies, to enhance shareholder value.
