"At Invitation Homes, we’re committed to leading the single-family industry by example. This includes creating an exceptional leasing experience for our residents, a workplace where our associates can thrive, and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policies that set a high bar for ourselves and our industry. As the nation’s premier home leasing company, we have an opportunity to make a profound impact on sustainability initiatives as we seek to live out our values of Unshakeable Integrity, Genuine Care, Continuous Excellence, and Standout Citizenship.”
Our desire to serve our stakeholders guides our work each and every day:
Invitation Homes’ success is fueled by the growing demand for high-quality, single-family homes for lease. Many things contribute to an exceptional experience for our residents – the speed and effectiveness of our service, the quality of our portfolio through our ongoing commitment to maintaining our homes, the genuine care we provide in each interaction, and so much more.
Associates are the backbone of our company. Nothing happens without the day-to-day dedication of our invaluable teams. Whether they are a front-line brand ambassador who represents us each and every day with our residents, or a back-of-the-house support team member who ensures we continue to move forward, our associates are our greatest asset.
Being a good neighbor is critical in the communities where we do business. This includes volunteering in our local communities and contributing dollars to non-profit organizations doing good in our neighborhoods. It also involves the full economic impact of our business on the community, through improved neighborhoods that result from our home renovations and the value of our local teams living in and contributing to the local economy, as well as through real estate taxes and locally purchased goods and services.
We have a diverse portfolio of investors. With every decision and every action, we must continue to earn their trust. To address the growing interest of investors in our ESG efforts, we’ll continually evolve our corporate strategy in order to meet sustainability and social responsibility commitments.
We know we have room to grow, and we are committed to learning and improving our approach. In order to ensure consistent attention and focus on ESG matters, we employ dedicated ESG professionals as well as a cross-functional task force of associates. In addition, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors is responsible for monitoring, reviewing, and providing oversight with respect to the company’s ESG strategy, initiatives, and policies. This committee receives periodic updates from management regarding the company’s ESG activities and progress. We also believe in the value of feedback, and we hold ourselves accountable. To that end, we participate in the GRESB Real Estate Assessment for a third-party evaluation of our ESG performance, and we are the first US REIT ever to link the pricing of a revolving credit facility to our GRESB score.
Together, we’re building something truly amazing.
