Governance, Policies and Procedures

Having robust policies and procedures sets the foundation for a culture of sustainability across all business units and in our daily operations.

Sustainability is a priority for our leadership team. The Board is responsible for the effective governance and oversight of ESG matters, as well as assessment and management of material environmental and social risks. The Board has overall responsibility for our corporate sustainability strategies, targets, as well as ESG and climate-related risks and opportunities. The Board has oversight of the incorporation of climate-related considerations into investment, risk and asset management processes and oversees progress against goals for addressing climate-related issues.

As a world-class real estate investor and manager, we have developed a comprehensive set of sustainability-related policies. This ensures we uphold our commitments to stakeholders and work towards common goals together.


Biodiversity Policy

This policy sets out Link's stance and approach on biodiversity and enables us to assess biodiversity-related risks and opportunities in managing our investments, as well as anticipate and respond proactively to emerging regulations and societal expectations. By creating assets that are connected to their local and natural environment, we provide nearby communities with vibrant shopping experiences. 


Climate Change and Energy Policy

This policy describes Link’s stance and approaches to climate change and energy management. The objective of the policy is to improve climate change resilience and energy efficiency, providing general guidance on energy management.


Waste Policy

Code of Conduct

This outlines a set of appropriate behaviour guidelines for all staff with examples for reference, in particular for those who supervise or deal with consultants, contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, service providers and tenants of the shopping centre and car parks under Link's management.

We have strict policies against different types of corruption, and the Board has oversight of our anti-corruption actions. Link does not tolerate any forms of corruption including bribery, kickbacks, grease payments, extortion, fraud and money-laundering under any circumstances. Our anti-corruption efforts are supported by a confidential whistle-blowing system which covers the abovementioned areas of anti-corruption.

We also counter any forms of conflict of interest, including nepotism, self-dealing and concurrent employment to ensure that the company's integrity and objectivity are not compromised or perceived to be compromised. It is the Company’s general policy to remain politically neutral and to avoid taking political stand with contributions to selected political parties or charitable donations for a political cause.

All new staff must take a mandatory course on the Code of Conduct, which comprises the anti-corruption policy that encompasses anti-corruption measures comprehensively. All Link staff are required to re-study the code of conduct every year via e-Learning as annual affirmation.

Supplier Code of Conduct

Our Supplier Code of Conduct upholds ethical business practices, e.g. complying with applicable regulations, avoiding pollution and conserving resources, as well as protecting labor rights which include health and safety, anti-discrimination and proper compensation / working hours.


Procurement Policy

This policy aims to ensure a consistent, efficient, and sustainable procurement while maintaining an open and fair competition with adequate control to manage Link’s procurement risk. Our staff who procure goods or services shall comply with the stated general principles at minimum and take consideration of the sustainability criteria where applicable.


Whistle-Blowing Policy

This policy aims to provide a clear procedure and a trusted avenue so that all staff members will feel confident in reporting concerns or irregularities, malpractice or impropriety in the workplace in good faith, without fear that they will be penalised, discriminated or dismissed.

Our confidential whistle-blowing system covers human right issues and anti-corruption extensively, including bribery, extortion, fraud, money-laundering and other elements of corruption. The mechanism also addresses issues of bullying and harassment to ensure a harassment-free workplace. We also have manager trainings in place on handling reports or instances of bullying or harassment.
