Better Futures for Everyone
Centennial has always prioritised our people and our culture.
The introduction of a formalised ESG Strategy was the next natural step for our business, which through growth has an increasing impact on the environment and our customers, partners, people and the communities in which we operate.
Centennial’s first ESG strategy will enhance and add to our existing efforts and provide a road map for us to better our environmental, social and governance practices. It will also provide a clearer framework for our stakeholders and industry to recognise the work we are dedicating to this area.
We are committed and excited to be stepping up our ESG journey and improving our performance year on year, as we strive for a better future for all.
Our Sustainability Approach
Centennial’s sustainability framework is derived from an assessment that identifies three material topics from Environment, Social and Governance and sets goals within each.
These goals are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Centennial is committed to being transparent and practical when developing initiatives for each topic under this framework, as we strive for a better future.
We work in partnership with our customers to deliver meaningful, sustainable integrated logistics solutions.
We are committed to creating sustainable buildings that positively contribute to our cities. These goals will build a sustainability framework across the asset lifecycle, which adds value for our customers and investors alike.
