About this report

For the third year in a row, we are publishing a combined report with information on our yearly highlights, financial performance and corporate social responsibility achievements, thereby emphasizing the integral role of CSR in our business strategies. In addition, this report marks the fourth time we have published an updated materiality assessment indicating the factors perceived as the most important by our stakeholders, both those who work directly for Ivanhoé Cambridge and those with whom we collaborate.

This report covers the period from January to December 2018. When relevant CSR data are available, the report compares them with our performance in 2017. It does not reflect all of our CSR achievements in prior years. For the first time this year, we are presenting a portfolio-wide overview of our environmental performance using data collected through the ESG Benchmark for Real Assets (GRESB) survey. This information applies to the period from January 1 to December 31, 2017.

This report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option and includes the construction and real estate sector supplement. Note that the contents herein have not been subject to an external audit by an independent third party.

Through our CSR strategy and the various initiatives we have introduced, we meet 10 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established in 2015 to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect the planet. The colour-coded SDG icons are also featured in the report and in the GRI index, in each of the cited GRI Standards and on our website.
