CDL Hospitality Trusts - Sustainability Report 2022

SUSTAINABILITY REPORT Our Material ESG Factors CDLHT’s Material ESG Factors under our Core ESG Pillars were determined in consultation with our ESG consultants, internal stakeholders and approved by our boards. These material factors are considered material because they are relevant for the continuity of our business. We have reviewed our identified material topics for FY 2022 and have renewed our commitments to the existing list of topics under our five core ESG pillars. In FY 2022, we have also expanded our reporting to include five new factors that we consider material in ensuring the sustainability of our operations. These are: Responsible Investment, Data Privacy and Protection, Climate Action and Resilience, Emissions Reduction, and Local Community Impact. We will also commence reporting on the topics of Safe and Liveable Buildings, and Fair Labour and Human Rights as part of our ESG framework from FY 2023. We have strengthened our sustainability framework by aligning our ESG pillars, material ESG factors, and our commitments to the relevant United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”).
