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. Equity Residential's ESG Program actively manages environmental impacts and climate-related risks and opportunities through optimized, financially responsible capital investments, and technologies. We methodically focus on energy, water, and GHG emissions to advance our program's policies, targets, and resilience outcomes.

Together our program drives long-term asset value, responsibly manages risks, and engages our communities, residents, employees, and shareholders as part of our broader ESG strategy and commitment to good corporate citizenship and maximizing investment performance.

For the last ten 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
