My organization mainly focuses on the development of new construction and/or major renovations projects. Should I participate?

If you mainly focus on development activities instead of management of standing investments, you should complete the Management and Development Components:

  • Management Component – measures the entity’s strategy and leadership management, policies and processes, risk management and stakeholder engagement approach, comprising of information collected at the organizational level.
  • Development Component – measures the entity’s efforts to address ESG issues during the design, construction, and renovation of buildings. This Component is suitable for entities involved in new construction (building design, site selection and/or construction) and/or major renovation projects, with on-going projects or completed projects during the reporting period.
