OUR GOAL

5% Emissions Reduction, 20% Increase in Waste Data Coverage in Five Years and Expanded Wellness Program

Steps to succEed

Each step is focused on improving the environment, our properties and our employees’ well-being.

For the environment, KBS has set the goal of achieving a 5% greenhouse gas emissions reduction by 2025. Our goal covers both the emissions that are under our direct control and the on-site emissions generated by our tenants in the properties we manage.

Using a dedicated ESG data management platform in conjunction with our property management teams across the United States, we track and benchmark each property’s waste usage.

With our employees, our goal is to increase employee participation on our wellness app by 5% within three years. We will accomplish this by taking a holistic approach and offer programs that support employee medical, financial and mental health.
