Environmental, Social, Governance

A bigger world view serves us all.

ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) initiatives are a significant component of our goal to deliver competitive returns by creating places that make a significant difference. To maximize the impact of our strategy, we have aligned our ESG initiatives with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework. Each year, we take actions to improve and lessen our environmental impact, as well as encourage and enable our Link ApartmentsSM residents to participate in the behaviors that will elevate our effort.
