ESG Core Values

GID’s ESG Program was founded on five core values that demonstrate a holistic approach to real estate investment.

    Responsible Investments

    ESG is just one of several factors considered when making investment decisions.  ESG alone is not a determinant in any investment decision.

    Efficient Properties

    We incorporate environmental and efficiency factors into our design and operations process, balancing use of natural resources with financial savings and operating performance.

  • Healthy People

    We strive to improve the health, well-being, and safety of our employees and residents. We value and respect diversity within our company and within our apartment communities, continually promoting inclusiveness and equality.
