Corporate Responsibility


Our purpose at Equity Residential is to create communities where people thrive and our commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues is at the core of that purpose. For the last nine years, we have reported on our aspirations, activities and accomplishments in incorporating ESG into our business operations and investments, our various ESG goals and our plans for the future.

In 2021, we surpassed our 15% reduction goal by reducing our 2011 level of energy consumption by nearly four percentage points to 18.7% of our 2011 level. We have set new energy reduction goals in alignment with our science-based emissions target of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions to work towards achieving our Board-approved science-based, Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions intensity target and will continue to share our progress.
