CBRE Group, Inc., Los Angeles, released its 2018 Corporate Responsibility Report, which highlights the company’s accomplishments in responsible business practices.
CBRE’s achievements include:
- A commitment to environmental sustainability, including progress toward achieving greenhouse gas reduction targets set in 2016 and 2017, certifying more than 60% of the company’s office space under internationally recognized green building standards and pledging to set a science-based greenhouse gas emissions reduction target.
- Registering and benchmarking 6,418 buildings, representing more than 420 million square feet, in the U.S. Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR program.
- Heightened focus on employee safety and well-being, as reflected in a 24% drop in Total Recordable Incident Rate from 2017 to 2018.
- Increased investment in diversity and inclusion programs, and an 11-person board of directors that now includes three women and three diverse men.
A key element of this year’s report is an expanded discussion of issues related to sexual harassment in the workplace.
“Responsible business practices are integral to our strategy and to the work we perform for clients. We are proud of our performance on key environmental, social and governance issues and are committed to a goal of creating outcomes for all our stakeholders that are the best available in the marketplace,” says Bob Sulentic, president and CEO.
