The Australasian Centre for Corporate Responsibility (ACCR) welcomes the release of Scentre Group’s Responsible Business Report and Modern Slavery Statement.
In February 2021, ACCR withdrew a proposed shareholder resolution that we had planned to file with Scentre Group after the company agreed to boost their pandemic reporting. Scentre Group agreed to disclose their processes for identifying and mitigating risks within their cleaning supply chain, but also how work, health and safety obligations are monitored and the efficacy of grievance mechanisms available to workers.
ACCR will be consulting with investors and other stakeholders on the reporting. ACCR is currently reviewing the reporting of the largest publicly listed shopping centre and office owners, and will be releasing a benchmarking report in May 2021.
