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 eight 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.

With our recent achievement in 2019 of meeting our 2011 GHG emission reduction goals by 25% two years early, we are very pleased to be able to demonstrate continued ambition by setting a new Science-Based Target that is aligned with a scenario that keeps global warming well below 2°C. We are eager to demonstrate an increased level of rigor and oversight and plan to reduce our emissions by 30% by 2030.
