ESG is not only a report nor simply being charitable. The most important aspect of ESG is being determined to be a good person and communicating with stakeholders in an efficient and professional way.

Focus on Green Operation
to Promote Sustainable Community Upgrade
Peaking carbon dioxide emissions and carbon neutrality have been in focus since the NPC and CPPCC were held. In the context of double carbon "30·60" (shorthand for "achieving the goal of peaking carbon dioxide emissions before 2030 and carbon neutrality before 2060"), ESG is becoming increasingly important for enterprises. It is a vital component of the sustainable development management of an enterprise and of promoting global sustainable development.
Landsea Green Life was established with green genes. During the past 16 years, it has always advocated the concept of harmonious coexistence of human, society, and nature and become a full life cycle green living service provider in a short period of time. In the course of development, we have formulated a mature concept of green operation and a featured ESG management system.
At the conference, Mr. Wu Xu, chief executive officer, shared Landsea Green Life’s practical approach of ESG empowering sustainable communities. "We consider ESG management an important foundation for enterprise development and sustainable community improvement so as to create a better life for people and promote global sustainable development."
Sustainable development has become one of the core issues of global development. As a responsible property management service provider, Landsea Green Life continues to build sustainable communities to help people enjoy better green living via warm community services and the professional capability of green O&M on the basis of ESG management.

First ESG Report Supports Differentiation Approach of Landsea Green Life
In line with the relevant international standards, such as the global sustainable development goals, ISO37120 for sustainable cities and communities, the standards of "Sustainable Urban Development and Livable Garden Community Programme" (SUC), ISC (Institute for Sustainable Communities) standards and other international standards, we have come up with three dimensions of sustainable communities—more inclusive, safer, and healthier to constantly upgrade sustainable communities.
As a responsible property management service provider with high social value, Landsea Green Life has formed differentiated advantages with its green operation and maintenance capability and has focused on building warm communities adhering to the "people-oriented, positive, and green services" value.
People-oriented service for a more inclusive community. We pay close attention to the actual needs of property owners, respect and strive to meet the core needs of customers of different ages and groups. We provide caring services and focus mainly on building and operating “The Landsea Friends”, creating more inclusiveness and better community living. We build houses to suit the lifestyle of the elderly and leisure and entertainment areas that stimulate the creativity of children to benefit their physical and mental health. Meanwhile, we maintain communication with property owners via multiple channels including but not limited to 400 customer service hotlines, owner committees, and community cultural activities. We jointly create humanistic community living with property owners by operating communities and guiding residents to hold healthy and positive cultural and sports activities to raise the cultural and ethical standards in communities and involve more property owners in community activities. These activities help build harmonious and friendly neighborhood relationships and humanistic communities.
Positive services for a safer community. Landsea Green Life has always attached importance to building safety and anti-disaster capability in the community. We leverage cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, and other technical means to create"smart property management plus smart life" through digital platforms like "Landsea e-cloud platform" and "Landsea Neighborhood." A slew of measures, such as publicity, popularization of knowledge, and emergency response drills have been adopted to constantly improve the community's resilience against disasters and build a safe community. During the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, we worked with external institutions to hold a free online clinic, providing consulting services for over 1.16 million property owners and medical services for nearly 60,000 property owners.
Green operation for a healthier community. Green is the genetic code of Landsea. We have over ten years of experience in green community operation and maintenance (O&M) and are leaders in providing customer satisfaction in the industry. We adhere to a customer-oriented approach to build green and healthy communities through professional green operation and comprehensive education on environmental protection knowledge in communities. Landsea Green Life carries out comprehensive green operation & maintenance in the community from eight aspects: sustainable management, resilience, health and well-being, energy, resources, land use and ecology, pollution, and water. Landsea Green Life continues to improve professional capabilities for operation and maintenance to help improve community quality and contribute to a greener and healthier community life for residents in the community. As of September 30, 2020, among the total of 117 projects managed by Landsea Green Life, 34.1% of the floor area had received the China Green Building Label.
Look forward to the future and focus on current practices. Landsea Green Life will continue to consolidate the theoretical and practical foundation of green operation, and strengthen the international and prospective vision of ESG management. We will focus on building sustainable communities, adopting the concept of "more inclusive, safer, and healthier" to increase the customer, environmental, and social value of property management services and create shared value for stakeholders so as to contribute to realizing the global sustainable development goal.
