Leading better in 2021: ESG

The coming year presents an opportunity and an obligation for people and organizations to lead positive and transformative environmental, social and governance change.

By 2025, Gen Z will make up 30% of the workforce. Companies shouldn't wait until then to honor the ¾ of Gen Z’ers who believe racial equality is the most critical issue of the day, with the environment closely behind. Without clearly outlined diversity, inclusion and sustainability commitments, employers will struggle to compete for talent.

The importance of ESG in commercial real estate: The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the social and economic inequities and vulnerabilities in our healthcare, education and social systems. As a result, the importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals has increased, and it is with this momentum those of us who grow, nurture and inhabit the built environment can increase these commitments for a better future.
