Our
Approach
to Sustainability

DLF is known for being at the forefront of transforming large urban landscapes of India with best-in-class buildings,
hence it has the responsibility to create sustained value for all stakeholders. Being one of the nation’s leading developers,
our goal is to ensure that we are progressing in terms of business growth whilst also conserving natural resources.

To achieve this, we have built an Environment Management System (EMS) aligned to ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and ISO 9001 standards,
applicable to the standing investment portfolio, to minimise our carbon footprint. Our Environmental Policy provides
direction for our operations and business decisions in the areas of biodiversity, waste management, pollution control,
water management, climate change, and sustainable sourcing.
