Guidance on social responsibility on 1 November 2010, CDL is pleased to be the first Singapore company to address the ISO 26000 framework in its 2011 report.

The report covers CDL’s company-wide environmental and social performance for the calendar year 2010.

The report focuses on CDL’s business, corporate governance, risk management, the environment, employees and community engagement, and outlines Company’s ongoing commitment to meet its CSR targets. Although sustainability reporting is not a mandatory requirement in Singapore, CDL is voluntarily disclosing the information as the Company respects and upholds the principle of transparency and open communication. CDL’s CSR engagement continues to evolve, with a view to improve.
