Scentre Group releases 2023 Responsible Business Report

Scentre Group (ASX: SCG) today released its 2023 Responsible Business Report highlighting progress across the four pillars of its Responsible Business framework – community, talent, environment and economic performance.

Scentre Group Chief Executive Officer, Elliott Rusanow said: “Operating as a responsible and sustainable business is part of our strategy and how we create long-term value for our securityholders.

“Over the past 12 months, we’ve made progress on our net zero strategy.

“We completed rooftop solar installations at Westfield Fountain Gate, Westfield Knox, Westfield Hornsby and Westfield Tuggerah, which together more than double the Group’s solar generation capacity from 5.9MW to 12.2MW.

“We also entered into a long-term energy agreement in NSW and Victoria. Together with our existing agreements in Queensland and New Zealand, this will assist us in achieving our goal of net zero emissions by 2030 (Scope 1 and 2 emissions).”
