Leading diversified professional services and investment management company, Colliers, published its first annual Global Impact Report, highlighting its commitment to embedding environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) best practices across the organization. In the coming months, Colliers will conduct a materiality assessment to understand the firm’s greatest opportunities to effect positive change and establish a comprehensive strategy with measurable targets.
“In 2020, we saw the world rally around important themes like diversity, health, and the environment that are shaping how we operate,” said Jay Hennick, Global Chairman and CEO of Colliers.
“This backdrop reaffirms that, as leaders in our industry, building a better future for our business, people, clients, and communities has never been more important. The 2020 Global Impact Report is a great first step in that direction and we are excited to carry this momentum into the development of a thoughtful and comprehensive ESG strategy this year,” he added.
“ESG is the blueprint to doing what’s right, a core value at Colliers. In developing this report, it was humbling to see so many ESG initiatives already in action in our operations around the world. While we are pleased with our progress, we are eager to unify our efforts and create a globally aligned, measurable strategy with specific, tangible commitments that will allow us to deliver transformative change to our clients, people, and communities,” Becky Finley, Global Chief Brand & People Officer, continued.
Colliers’ 2020 Global Impact Report focuses on current work and initiatives across three key areas: helping the environment, engaging people and communities, and acting with honesty and integrity.
