ESR Cayman ESG Report 2021

PEOPLE ARE OUR GREATEST ASSET DIVERSITY & INCLUSION Diverse workplaces free from discrimination We value diversity and believe all employees have the right to work in a supportive and professional environment. Employees at all levels have an obligation to ensure that the Company’s Diversity and Inclusion goals are fully carried out in their areas of responsibilities. It is the responsibility of each supervisor to promptly address any questions or complaints about diversity or equal treatment and, if necessary, refer them to the Human Resources Department for additional assistance. In terms of our recruiting process, we provide equal opportunities to employees, candidates and suppliers where no applicant will be treated less favourably than another based on grounds including race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion, family status, membership in trade unions and political affiliations. Women in our workforce At 37.8%, women are represented in our workforce with room for improvement, particularly at senior management levels, reflecting social and cultural norms for our industry in the APAC region. ESR strives to redress the gender balance through policies and procedures for attracting, encouraging and supporting female candidates and employees. ESR once again embraced International Women’s Day in 2021 as an opportunity to celebrate the women who work at ESR. We took part in a virtual event hosted by the Asia Pacific Real Estate Association (APREA) on the theme ‘Choose to Challenge’, where our Group CCO, Lilian Lee, alongside other accomplished women leaders, shared words of inspiration and together promoted gender inclusivity in Asia’s real estate sector. We also launched the ESG Webinar Series: Celebrating the Women of ESR in 2021, where we heard from two speakers - Anne LeBourgeois (Hamilton Advisors) and Pat Dwyer (The Purpose Business), as well as our own colleagues, around the theme of the value and challenges of women at work. In Australia, we hosted an International Women’s Day lunch with external guest speaker Josephine Sukkar, who was appointed the first female Chair of Sport Australia. The event saw high participation from our female employees, many of whom were inspired by the event and found it helpful through the sharing of practical tips on optimising career progression. To uphold the Group’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, the Company (in conjunction with the nomination committee) has appointed two new female independent non-executive directors to the Board on 19 April 2022 and 25 May 2022 (i.e. total of three female directors currently).
