Sustainability is core to our operations.
We have a responsibility as building owners to continuously push for more sustainable practices and have a positive impact — not just for our shareholders—but for our residents and the communities where they live.

Simply put, it matters.

At WashREIT, we are transforming environmentally and socially responsible strategies into sustainable actions that deliver value to our tenants, shareholders, and communities.

Because we are committed to the efficient and sustainable operation of our properties over their entire lifespan, we set ambitious 2025 sustainability targets. We’re proud to report we’re tracking towards meeting these goals more than a year ahead of target.

Tracking our progress

At WashREIT, our commitments to environmental, social, and governance programs and policies helped us create safe environments for residents and employees and maintain quality of life in our multifamily and office buildings. While navigating the pandemic our company has also embarked on a major transformation—shifting from serving office tenants, retailers, and residents to focusing solely on those residents and creating value in the communities we own.
