DBS : Fortune REIT enters its first sustainability-linked swap with DBS and launches Farm@Fortune with first harvest donated to charity | 繁體

Fortune REIT enters its first sustainability-linked swap with DBS and launches Farm@Fortune with first harvest donated to charity | 繁體
Hong Kong, 20 Dec 2021 - ARA Asset Management (Fortune) Limited, the manager of Fortune Real Estate Investment Trust ("Fortune REIT") (Stock Code: 778), is pleased to announce that Fortune REIT has entered into its first sustainability-linked interest rate swap (the "Swap") with DBS Bank ("DBS"). This is Fortune REIT's third green financing initiative, following its two sustainability-linked loans of HK$2.5 billion in total.

In addition to providing an interest rate hedge for Fortune REIT's floating rate debt, Fortune REIT will be entitled to a sponsorship from DBS upon the fulfilment of certain predetermined targets on community engagement under the Swap. The opportunity gives rise to Farm@Fortune, in which Fortune REIT partnered with Rooftop Republic Urban Farming ("Rooftop Republic"), a social enterprise supported by the DBS Foundation, to set up an urban farm at Fortune City One.

In Hong Kong, farmland resources are scarce, and hence most of its vegetable supply is imported. The associated packaging and transportation contribute to an increase in carbon footprint. Farm@Fortune is an integrated green community project that promotes sustainable living practices in the community and circular economy through the recycling of surplus vegetables. Consuming locally produced crops can help minimise the need for transportation, thereby reducing carbon footprint.

The urban farm, located on the rooftop of the flagship mall Fortune City One in Shatin, grows more than 15 types of organic seasonal crops yearlong. To create an organic farming eco-system within the community, surplus vegetables that are no longer suitable for consumption are collected from the Fortune City One Market and converted into compost for the farm. Its first harvest earlier this month yielded a total of 32 kg of produce, all of which have been donated to the local charitable orgnaisation Food Angel.

Ms Justina Chiu, Chief Executive Officer of ARA Asset Management (Fortune) Limited, stated, "We are excited to launch Fortune Malls' first urban farm, providing a platform to promote the practice of organic farming and food waste reduction. Farm@Fortune, signifying our green partnership with DBS and Rooftop Republic, aligns with our motto 'Our Care, Your Fortune'. The urban farm is part of our on-going efforts in raising public's awareness towards decarbonisation and to generate long-term value for the community."

Mr Alex Cheung, Managing Director and Head of Institutional Banking Group of DBS Hong Kong, remarked, "DBS Hong Kong has been a forerunner in green financing, as deeply rooted in our 'Responsible Banking' sustainability pillar. We aim to advance the sustainability goals of our clients and the society at large. It is our privilege to be a trusted partner for Fortune REIT as it lays a milestone in its green journey that fosters a purposeful collaboration with social enterprises while benefiting the needy in Hong Kong."

In a concrete jungle like Hong Kong, urban farming utilises underused urban areas and transforms it into green spaces to strengthen food resiliency and create oases of biodiversity. It also empowers communities to lead more sustainable lifestyles and rebuilds city dwellers' relationships with food and nature.
