Stockland rated top Property company globally by Dow Jones Sustainability Index

ASX/Media Release

Stockland has been recognised as the most sustainable property company in the world in the 2011/2012 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI).
The DJSI evaluates the performance of companies by analysing environmental and social performance, and assessing categories including corporate governance, risk management, climate change mitigation and stakeholder engagement.

Stockland recorded a total score of 90, rating it the highest among property (Real Estate) companies across the globe, with the average score in the Real Estate DJSI World being 63.

Stockland Managing Director Matthew Quinn said: "Stockland has been a member of the DJSI for the past four years. Recognition of Stockland as a global leader reflects our commitment to embedding environmental and social sustainability practices.

"Some of the categories where Stockland scored highest among its global competitors included Social Integration, Environmental Policy and Reporting, Risk Management, and Standards for Suppliers," Mr Quinn said.

Investors use the DJSI to help them choose companies which proactively manage their impact on the environment and promote social responsibility.
"Sustainability is the right thing to do and makes good business sense, creating value for Stockland and our communities," Mr Quinn added.

"We will continue to drive efficiencies and innovation in this area, delivering
developments such as our re-designed Stockland Forster, which recently achieved Australia's first 6 Star Retail NABERS Energy rating. Since 2006 Stockland has reduced greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 38% across its office portfolio and by 18% across its retail portfolio.

"Stockland is committed to creating better ways for people to live and leaving the environment that they enjoy in great shape for future generations."
