ESG

“We build and operate commercial real estate to save the global environment, not to destroy it.
We build and operate to foster human wellness, not to undermine it.
We build and operate to promote diversity, not to impose uniformity.
We build and operate to facilitate creativity, not to encourage conformity.
We build and operate as city builders, which in a way embraces everything else.”
MICHAEL EMORY

ENVIRONMENTAL: Our impact on the natural world at both corporate and property levels.

SOCIAL: Our relationship with key stakeholders, including users, employees, suppliers and the communities in which we operate.

GOVERNANCE: Our internal policies, programs and processes that support the management of our business and the execution of ESG-related activities.
