We are committed to excellence in Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) performance. We measure ourselves based on the real-world effect of our culture and operations.

Environmental Stewardship

The nature of our investment strategy promotes environmental stewardship in meaningful ways.

  • Proximity to essential distribution points means fewer vehicle miles travels, less fuel used and fewer emissions produced.
  • Repurposing existing buildings allows for use of recycled materials and installation of energy and water usage efficiencies.
  • Development of historical manufacturing sites includes removal of hazardous materials benefiting on-site workers and surrounding communities.
  • Absence of greenfield development leaves open land intact, preserving watersheds and plant life that combats carbon emissions.
  • New construction is LEED certified and solar panel installations are ongoing.
