Our Commitment to ESG

At Centerspace, we are committed to Better Every Days by providing a great home for our residents, team members, and investors. Our way forward to make each day brighter is understanding our impact as a company and how we can enhance the lives of those we touch. Our business is to build healthy, equitable, sustainable, and vibrant communities through actions that serve our residents and teams.

We look to the future and embrace change, knowing that the opportunities that arise as we grow together will help set the stage for long-term success in improving our social and environmental impacts and the policies that guide our business. Our commitment starts with the wellbeing of our residents, team members, and communities that we serve. We also strive to monitor our use of natural resources to enhance corporate stewardship, as we know continuous improvement is only possible when we back up our actions with robust and consistent measurements of progress. Finally, we aim to continue our long tradition of strong governance in our efforts to do the right thing, make positive contributions and serve others with integrity.
