ESG Mission Statement + Approach

We strive to optimize our property operations and add value for all stakeholders by following the “RITE” principles: Reduce, Innovate, Thrive, Engage. By incorporating sustainability throughout our daily operations, we enhance our performance, empower our people, support our communities and create shared value for all stakeholders. Each year, we further refine our sustainability approach and related programs.

REDUCE = Minimize the consumption of energy and water resources when and where possible, and reduce our intensity of greenhouse gases (“GHGs”), water use and non-recyclable waste

INNOVATE = Continue to adapt and enhance building operations, designs and technologies to maximize benefits

THRIVE = Allocate resources to manage sustainability-related risks and continue generating resilient cash flows that benefit our stakeholders

ENGAGE = Select, align and grow a healthy and talented workforce; attract, retain and support high credit tenants who value our full-service relationship; support our surrounding communities; and deliver on all stakeholder expectations
