The Green Cities Company has a differentiated approach to the traditional concepts of “green” and “sustainable.” Our approach emphasizes a robust view of ESG, encompassing the environmental footprint of our properties, the diversity and inclusivity of their communities, and the wellbeing and fulfillment of their occupants and neighbors.

Our proprietary Green Cities Index is a detailed metric, fully integrating ESG considerations throughout our investments’ lifecycle as well as in the Firm.  This industry-leading framework promotes our deep focus on five key pillars:

Environmental Impact
Focus on optimizing the energy, emissions, water, waste, and materials and furnishings used by our properties.
Climate Change Mitigation
Action-oriented look to the future, taking bold steps to reduce fossil fuel usage and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.
Enhancing the preparedness of our properties and tenants to withstand and recover from challenges like climate risks, social unrest, and large-scale health threats.
& Wellbeing
Commitment to safety, comfort, and physical and emotional wellness to improve the quality of life for our tenants.
Equitable Communities
Engagement to create a positive, inclusive impact within our properties and on the neighborhoods where they reside, driving opportunity, justice, and anti-discrimination.
