ABOUT

Our Impact

We strive to be a conscientious corporate citizen committed to responsible stewardship, improving outcomes for all of our stakeholders and giving back to the communities in which we serve.

Focus on Environmental Sustainability Issues

As a real estate owner and manager, one of our fundamental obligations is to minimize the environmental impact of our projects and investments to the extent possible. We understand that monitoring for and addressing environmental concerns is a key element of effective corporate governance for our investors and tenants.

We diligently analyze, enhance, and improve the environmental performance of our properties to the extent consistent with our tenants’ specifications.

We work with our tenants’ specifications to prioritize implementing systems and technologies that reduce emissions and resource consumption in our projects to the extent we can influence the build-to-suit process, including:

  • Implementing our tenants’ development asset designs and specifications to promote a healthy environment
  • Encouraging our developer partners to engage with supply chains with the lowest possible environmental impact
  • Encouraging our developer partners to manage our resources efficiently to minimize consumption and waste

Commitment to a Diverse Workplace

We are dedicated to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. All of our employees have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times, promote inclusion during work, and complete annual diversity awareness trainings.

Our Human Capital is the Most Valuable Asset We Have

We embrace the characteristics that make our employees unique and believe that the individual differences, life experiences, innovation, self-expression, and talents of our team strengthen not only our culture but also our firm. Our policies and benefits are designed to reflect a work environment built to enhance gender and diversity equity, including:

  • Respectful communication and cooperation between all employees
  • Permitting representation of all groups and employee perspectives to encourage greater team and individual participation
  • Work/life balance through flexible work schedules to accommodate varying individual needs
  • Employer and employee contributions to the communities we serve to promote a greater understanding and respect for diversity initiatives

Giving Back to Our Community

We understand that we owe it to the communities that we operate in to give back and positively impact important issues such as Autism awareness, education, healthcare, hunger and food insecurity, and many more.

Giving back to our communities is a core tenet of our firm, and we strongly encourage our employees, partners, and investors to be positive forces of change for their neighborhoods and regions.
