CapitaLand Integrated Commercial Trust - Annual Report 2021

SOCIAL INTEGRATION We are committed to building safe, accessible, vibrant and quality real estate developments to enhance the lives of our stakeholders and communities around our properties. Our social integration criteria, which factor universal design considerations include: • Ensuring accessibility in the built environment to people of different age groups and varying mobility • Enhancing connectivity to public transport, roads, amenities and between buildings • Providing community spaces as public gathering points These design considerations are also integrated with CapitaLand’s Sustainable Building Guidelines (SBG) to ensure that they are considered from the start of the project development process. For its new projects in Singapore, a target has been set to achieve at least a UD Mark Gold certification as assessed by Singapore’s Building & Construction Authority (BCA). Universal design considerations ensure that public spaces in our properties are accessible to users of different age groups and varying abilities. These include: • Seamless connectivity to the external surroundings, such as bus stops, adjacent buildings, streets and sidewalks • Barrier-free access from accessible (handicapped) parking lots and family parking lots to lift lobbies • Sheltered and barrier-free drop-off areas • Accessible (handicapped) and family lots • Designated pedestrian lanes in car parks • Amenities such as accessible toilets, lifts and nursing rooms • Atrium spaces, libraries and play areas for children CICT’s 22 operating properties in Singapore either offer direct access to public transport hubs or are close to MRT stations, bus stops and taxi stands. All our properties have at least one facility for disability access. These include accessible alighting and boarding bays, lifts, parking lots and public toilets. Our properties are also guide-dog friendly. To encourage greener transportation modes, the Trust has allocated around 1,000 bicycle bays as well as green parking lots with charging stations across our properties. Plans are also underway to roll out more electric vehicle charging stations in our portfolio in collaboration with Singapore Power Mobility. For tenants who cycle to work, shower facilities are available in some properties. We have also continued the partnership with BlueSg on electric car-sharing at six of our malls, namely Clarke Quay, Funan, Lot One Shoppers’ Mall, Plaza Singapura, Tampines Mall and Westgate.
