What sustainability means to us
We believe that the best decisions are those made to the benefit of all stakeholders. We continue to integrate sustainable and resilient business practices to deliver value both for today and for future generations.
We continuously work to improve our environmental footprint within both our income producing and development portfolio so that we can do our part to preserve our planet for current and future generations.
We promote positive citizenship amongst our colleagues by empowering them to lead philanthropic initiatives for the communities in which we live and work.
Diversity & Culture
We have a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion where all people are valued and differences are seen as strengths. Our culture is grounded by our CORE Values – Care, Ownership, Respect and Excellence – and our three culture principles – be authentic, build trust and make connections.
