We believe sustainable success can only be built on a foundation of responsible business practices.
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. Please watch our video to learn more.
CBRE is committed to fulfilling its role as a responsible corporate citizen by supporting and adding value to the communities in which our employees live and work around the world.
CBRE Cares, the company’s corporate giving and volunteerism organization, facilitates this effort by serving as an overarching platform to further a wide variety of charitable activities. CBRE Cares leverages the passion and talents of our employees across the globe to create real benefit for individuals in need through community outreach and support, disaster-response initiatives, and locally driven, regionally sanctioned programs.
CBRE Cares is supported by the CBRE Foundation
, a nonprofit, public benefit corporation that funds our company’s philanthropic initiatives. Under its governance, CBRE Cares’ charitable initiatives have developed from grassroots efforts to a cohesive program more aligned with our business and values. While each of our company’s three regions— Americas; Europe, Middle East and Africa; and Asia Pacific—operates independently and establishes their own programs and initiatives, one element remains the same: the charitable spirit and enthusiasm for service of CBRE’s employees.
CBRE makes a significant impact on communities across the United States through the individual, local efforts of our offices and four principal U.S.-based initiatives—Matching Funds Program, National Shoe Collection Drive, Birthday Cakes & More for Homeless Children
and Shelter Program
. CBRE also offers U.S. employees two days paid time off during the year for their participation in certain volunteer opportunities.
Disaster relief is a long-held tenet of CBRE’s charitable agenda. The CBRE Disaster Relief Foundation, acting in tandem with the CBRE Foundation and CBRE Cares, matches employee contributions and distributes the funds through a network of global pre-approved partner organizations that focus on disaster relief and rebuilding communities in need. Additionally, the CBRE Disaster Relief Foundation enables employees around the world to aid fellow colleagues who have suffered a catastrophic loss as a result of a natural disaster by providing financial assistance via a grant process.
The CBRE Disaster Relief Foundation is currently raising funds to provide humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees. Click here
