Environmental, social and governance practices are embedded in all facets of our business

We are committed to responsible investing – ensuring that environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices are embedded in all facets of our business – because it provides a shared advantage for clients and other stakeholders.


We believe that adopting a culture of responsible investing helps us deliver performance for our clients and creates value by reducing risks. Therefore, ESG factors are considered at all stages of the investment lifecycle, from due diligence to the management of our portfolios, and for all types of investments, whether direct property, indirect unlisted real estate, listed real estate securities or infrastructure, and we provide investors with transparent reporting on our ESG initiatives and progress toward our goals.

Our Global Responsible Investment Management Committee (RIMCo) oversees our ESG activities, and regional and business line RIMCos implement them and promote best practices to support our portfolio and asset management functions as well as our corporate operations.


As a business, we support the 10 Principles of the United Nations Global Compact, the six Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), and the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our direct funds and separate accounts are active contributors to GRESB, the global ESG benchmark for real assets, which assesses the sustainability performance of our portfolios. With our ambition to be a leader in ESG integration, GRESB provides us with comparative business intelligence that allows our teams to understand how we are doing compared to our peers and where we can improve our ESG performance. CBRE Global Investment Partners, CBRE Clarion Securities and CBRE Caledon utilize GRESB to evaluate indirect investments and encourage companies and funds to participate in GRESB and join PRI.

Globally and regionally, our teams participate in ESG-related organizations including ANREV, Green Rating Alliance, INREV, Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change, the Urban Land Institute Sustainability Council, International Sustainability Alliance and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board. Our clients also benefit from our relationship with CBRE and their ESG activities including participation with the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, The Climate Group, Delos’ WELL Building Standard, and the World Green Building Council.

For environmental factors, we implement initiatives to help reduce and monitor carbon emissions, waste, and the use of energy and water, and seek green certifications for our buildings, including LEED, BREEAM, Energy Star or HQE.


Socially, we promote a culture of engagement and inclusivity for our employees, our tenants, our business partners and the greater community. We strive to maintain the safety of the properties we own and are committed to improving the impact they have on the wider community around them. Our proprietary operating programs create environments that foster the well-being and engagement of tenants and their employees, which we believe leads to increased tenant satisfaction and retention. In addition, we generally seek to exclude investments in assets with certain uses that may have negative social or environmental impacts.

We believe our corporate governance structure is responsive to stakeholders with clear guidance on the structure of committees, roles and responsibilities, our code of ethics and conflicts of interest. Our investor reporting provides our clients with timely and transparent data and analysis across all our investment solutions. CBRE Global Investment Partners, CBRE Clarion Securities and CBRE Caledon treat active engagement, including proxy voting and participation on advisory boards, as one of their fundamental responsibilities as investors.
