CSR & Sustainability

ISO Standards


In line with our commitment towards environmental sustainability, CDL has all core divisions and supporting operations conforming to ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS).

Based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, the EMS forms an integral part of CDL’s overall management system and is certified against the international ISO 14001 standard. It is used as a structured and systematic approach to:   

  • identify and control the environmental impact of CDL’s activities, products or services   
  • continually improve CDL’s environmental performance   
  • implement a systematic approach to set and measure environmental objectives and targets

As early as 2003, CDL set a new industry benchmark as the first private property developer to receive the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System and OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System in Property Development and Project Management.

In April 2008, we were awarded ISO 14001 in Corporate Management and Operations for all functions at our headquarters. Constantly striving to improve our EHS management performance, 15 CDL buildings underwent an exercise to attain the OHSAS 18001 in Property Management certification, which was accorded in January 2011. These 15 buildings also received the re-certification of the ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 Quality Management System which were first awarded in 2007.

ISO 14064 Assurance
In March 2016, CDL successfully assured the 2015 Greenhouse Gas emissions for our key Singapore Operations in accordance with ISO14064-1:2006, ‘Specification with guidance at the organisation level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals’. CDL is the first developer in Singapore to have achieved this assurance, reinforcing our commitment to low carbon operations.
