We never lose sight of our fundamentals: to improve the environmental and social performance of our portfolio.
Sustainable Communities Matter.
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.
2022 marked our third consecutive year of carbon neutral operations. We are proud to have fulfilled this goal that Kilroy CEO John Kilroy announced at the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit. In 2022 we expanded the scope of our carbon neutral operations commitment to go beyond Scope 1 and 2 emissions to include Scope 3 emissions associated with downstream leased assets (the carbon emissions associated with our tenants’ energy use). Additionally, 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.
