Energy, Emissions, Water, & Waste
The real estate industry accounts for over 40% of the world’s primary energy consumption. We’re doing our part to build a more sustainable future by setting aggressive goals to reduce energy, emissions, and water usage, while increasing waste diversion.
Philanthropy & Volunteerism
Through volunteerism, philanthropy, comprehensive health & wellness initiatives, opportunities for continued education, and more, we strive to improve the lives of our employees and our communities.
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
We believe strong, transparent governance, with an emphasis on maintaining high ethical standards and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout our business, is both a moral obligation and a key to our long-term success.
Big Goals, Big Impact
In 2021, we completed our inaugural three-year goal cycle that began in 2019, with notable accomplishments such as exceeding our energy and emissions reduction targets.
