CBRE 2016 Corporate Responsibility Report

As the world’s largest real estate services company, we take the impact we have on our clients, suppliers, employees, communities and stakeholders seriously. It’s our goal to be as widely recognized for the way we do business as we are for the quality of the real estate services we provide.

CBRE creates Shared Advantage through an integrated program of environmental and social actions that generate sustained growth and continuous opportunity for both the company and the communities we serve.

Building Connections—2016 Corporate Responsibility Report highlights the significant accomplishments and milestones of CBRE’s corporate responsibility program throughout 2016 and early 2017. The report was developed in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards: Core option and includes the company’s progress toward implementing the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact.

CBRE: Shared Advantage
Much has changed in the 10 years since CBRE began measuring and reporting on its corporate responsibility activities. Perhaps no single aspect of the knowledge gained is as crucial as this recognition:

All business activity has impacts, and the most responsible companies are those that closely align their corporate responsibility efforts with their specific business activities.
