Reporting Period
THIS REPORT COVERS THE PERIOD 1 JANUARY 2017 TO 31 DECEMBER 2017
AND IS ALIGNED WITH THE GLOBAL REPORTING INITIATIVE (GRI)
G4 SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING GUIDELINES.
SCOPE
Following the creation of Westfield
Corporation in July 2014, this report
represents the third full 12 month
period for which we have reported
sustainability data. In this report, we
have reported our progress in 2017
against data from the prior year.
The assets covered in this report
are those that Westfield Corporation
has had operational control of, for
six months or more, during 2017.
These assets include all our US and
UK shopping centres, office buildings
as well as our UK and European
construction and development sites.
At the time of preparation of this report
our US business has been unable to
track GHG emissions and to collate
other environmental data relating
to construction activity undertaken
by contractors as part of our US
development program. In future years
our US business will attempt to obtain
applicable construction activity data
from contractors.
All amounts in this report are in US
dollars unless otherwise specified.
This report does not extend to those
assets in which Westfield Corporation
has a financial interest but is not
responsible for managing on a
day-to-day basis.
In October and November 2017,
Westfield completed the expansion of
Century City in Los Angeles and UTC
in San Diego and as such day-to-day
operations are included in this report.
Westfield World Trade Center officially
opened in August 2016 and operated
for five months in 2016. Therefore,
although the center is included in
the absolute emissions for 2017 and
2016, it is not included in the “like-for-
like” comparisons shown in Section
5.1 Environment. In 2017, other than
noted above, Westfield Corporation did
not open any new sites or close any
active sites.
THIRD PARTY ASSURANCE
The Environmental data set out
in this report has been subject to
independent and external assurance
by DNV-GL Business Assurance
USA, Inc.
