Sustainability at Healthpeak

Our commitment to generating sustained value for our stakeholders extends beyond the economic realm to each dimension of sustainability: environmental, social, and governance (ESG) responsibility. Our environmental and social programs strive to provide a positive impact on our communities, while our governance initiatives incorporate sustainability as a critical component of achieving our business objectives and properly managing risk.

“Environmental, social and governance initiatives continue to reduce our carbon footprint at our facilities and further our commitment to being a good corporate citizen.”

Thomas Klaritch, EVP, Chief Development and Operating Officer
