Social and Relationship Capital

At CDL, we view social and relationship capital as the stock of resources created by the goodwill forged with our stakeholders and within the local and international communities that we operate in. To continuously build trust, we consistently manage our stakeholder relations through various platforms where we can mutually communicate views and concerns.

Our sustainable business model and strong track record of being an eco-developer and responsible corporate citizen have not only allowed us to attract like-minded partners and investors, but also a growing pool of consumers who consider sustainability more of an imperative than a value-add. The trust we have built with stakeholders beyond our shores also helps us gain foothold as we expand our international footprint. Strengthening our social and relationship capital is now even more essential and has far-reaching business impact beyond retaining our social licence to operate.

Anticipating and meeting the needs of our stakeholders is thus of utmost importance. As such, we invest considerable resources in building strategic collaborations with organisations from the Public, Private and People (3P) sectors to create greater value for our business and the community.

We define our stakeholders as groups that our business has a significant impact on and those with a vested interest in our operations. Our key stakeholders include employees, customers, builders and suppliers, and investors. Other groups include regulators and key government agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), the media, and our community-at-large. They are mapped into groups based on their impact on the Company as detailed here. Stakeholders’ issues of interest are outlined here.
