Our capital structure is sustainable, and we have a positive impact in our global communities through the Goodman Foundation. We promote strong leadership and governance, engage regularly with our stakeholders, and measure and disclose our financial and community impact.
Effective corporate governance, including ESG, is critical to the long-term performance of our business and our people. Our Boards and Sustainability and Innovation Committee oversee the implementation of our sustainability strategy, and meeting environmental and sustainability targets is part of our remuneration structure.
For a business to be truly sustainable, it needs to be financially sustainable. Goodman’s prudent financial management over the long-term enables us to deliver on our sustainability vision. While our new Sustainable Finance Framework gives us the financial flexibility to issue sustainability-linked bonds and loans.
Our ESG performance is disclosed regularly through our participation in benchmarks. It helps our stakeholders maintain their trust in Goodman’s governance and leadership.
We participate in three ESG benchmarks that are valued by our Investment Partners and also show us ways to continually improve.
We measure our financial sustainability and strength through our credit ratings of BBB+ (S&P) and Baa1 (Moody’s). These ratings reflect our sustainable operations and results, capital stability and approach to responsible investments.
Goodman supports the protection of human rights, equity and fairness in our supply chain. Our sustainable sourcing framework is helping us to better respond to the risk of modern slavery in our global supply chain, and to work with suppliers to mitigate it.
