ENVIRONMENTAL

Our tenants and hospital partners expect Healthcare Realty to be a reliable environmental steward. Accordingly, we’re committed to developing and operating our facilities in a way that minimizes our impact on the environment. We have identified four key objectives that reduce our environmental impact and complement our business plan:

  • Monitoring and benchmarking utility use
  • Leveraging data and technology to reduce utility consumption and greenhouse gas
  • Adopting sustainable practices when developing or re-developing a property
  • Educating tenants about how they can minimize their environmental impact

SOCIAL

Healthcare Realty recognizes that supporting and engaging with its tenants, employees, and communities are important factors for long-term success. Strengthening those relationships are vital to our effort to deliver enduring growth to investors. As we continue to implement our sustainability plan, we seek to build those relationships with our commitment to:

  • Promoting health and wellness in our buildings, most of which are located on a hospital campus
  • Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our tenants and employees
  • Supporting employees through professional training, education and service
  • Contributing to our not-for-profit hospital partners’ charitable foundations
  • Committing to be responsible community members

GOVERNANCE

The foundation to our sustainability efforts is responsible corporate governance. We aim to ensure that our policies and practices promote diversity, ethics, and responsibility. In addition, the Board of Directors and senior management are actively engaged in assessing and managing risk, whether as a result of natural disasters, cyber-attacks, or improper actions, throughout the portfolio and the Company.

Healthcare Realty is committed to:

  • Fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, inclusion, and equality
  • Applying a professional code of business conduct and ethical behavior
  • Executing a robust risk management program
  • Implementing shareholder friendly policies and procedures
