Our Approach to ESG

As part of QuadReal’s commitment to being a Responsible Company, we are involved members of the communities where we live, work and invest. We work to advance the quality of life to our communities through our actions, including charitable giving and local engagement.

In support of our commitment to building stronger communities, QuadReal has a teamwide dedication to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) into the company’s core activities. These include our corporate, global real estate and debt management, due diligence and investing activities. One of the key ways we hold ourselves accountable is by benchmarking our ESG performance through the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB).

QuadReal is proud to have achieved the top ranking for a diversified portfolio in both Canada and North America in the 2020 GRESB results. The company’s diversified portfolio of office, industrial, retail and residential properties was also ranked 2nd globally. This accomplishment demonstrates our commitment to ESG practices. To learn more about the GRESB results, please see our news release.
