We never lose sight of our fundamentals: to improve the environmental and social performance of our portfolio.
Sustainable communities that protect and maintain the health and wellbeing of residents and visitors.
We believe a company cannot be sustainable if it focuses on environmental concerns without looking at its impacts on its employees, tenants, and communities. Our efforts significantly reduce our environmental footprint, enhancing our client’s comfort, health, and financial savings.
We have aligned our objectives with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and will continue to use the SDGs to help refine our objectives in the coming years.

Aggressively minimizing our environmental footprint.
In 2020 and 2021 we achieved carbon neutral operations, otherwise known as Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon neutrality, and Kilroy remains the premier developer and operator of LEED properties on the West Coast.
Our sustainability efforts are broad, and include a focus on energy, water, waste, carbon, transit, health, biodiversity, and community engagement. We identify climate change as both a risk and an opportunity to our business and we build these factors into our strategy and risk management efforts. From our energy, water, carbon, and waste efficiency projects, to onsite solar installations, green bond financing, and building certifications, our sustainability programs are an opportunity for long-term value creation and a key driver in long-term strategic business decisions.
