Actively engaging with our stakeholders provides valuable insight to inform strategy, attract and retain top talent, and strengthen tenant relationships. Our core values help shape how we interact with our stakeholders and the best way to meet their needs.

Continuously engage with our tenants to understand leasing and operational needs at our assets and provide tools and resources to promote sustainable tenant operations.

Conduct an annual ESG+R survey with property teams to track sustainability initiatives at the property level, including tenant and community engagement metrics.
Assess tenant and employee satisfaction and feedback through annual surveys.
Provide our employees with annual trainings, industry updates and access to tools and resources related to ESG+R.

Performance

These key actions are a top priority for us. In many instances, we've successfully implemented these actions and are already recognizing a meaningful impact.

Tenant Needs
Through the distribution of a tenant survey, we've collected more feedback, which has led to increased dialogue and partnership opportunities.
Health/Wellness
We've organized step and other health-related challenges for our employees, in addition to offering fitness, yoga, and meditation classes. Further, we provide an employee assistance program with 24/7 unlimited access to referrals and resources for all work-life needs, including access to face-to-face and telephonic counseling sessions, legal and financial referrals, and consultations.
Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer opportunities at various non-profit organizations have been organized, and we have made significant contributions to local clothing and food drives.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion ("DEI")
We've established a DEI Committee, which meets regularly to discuss important topics and execute on various initiatives. This includes regular education and trainings, open discussion forums, recognition and understanding of all cultures and races, and recruiting and internship opportunities. Further, our employees committed their own time and money to 21 different DEI organizations that were important to them.
Our ESG program is aligned with INREV, GRESB, GRI and UNPRI. Data provided herein has been reviewed by LORD Green Strategies and represents a snapshot of current performance.
