ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL & GOVERNANCE
RESPONSIBLE TO ALL OUR STAKEHOLDERS
At Columbia, we have always recognized that our actions have both immediate and far-reaching impacts on our stakeholders, our communities, and the environment.
We understand how important it is that we act with awareness and transparency, and we take responsibility for our actions and commit to doing the work necessary to ensure our impact is positive. This includes the impacts of our operations across our properties - both those we own and those we manage for others - as well as the impact of our actions toward every stakeholder, including our team members, tenants, investors, partners, service providers, industry associates, and neighbors everywhere.
Our impact is expanded through our business of owning, operating, and developing iconic office buildings in the nation’s centers of business, for some of the world’s most dynamic, groundbreaking companies. We care for our tenants by providing exceptional workspaces where their work is centered and by fostering the connection between them and the surrounding community of resources that make the difference between a place to work, and a great place to work.
With determination and resiliency, we work together to deliver long-term value and continue to drive results and goodwill for all our stakeholders.
