Cultivating a More Resilient World

We are dedicated to serving our properties, people and the planet as we integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into the heart of our business.

Veris Residential understands that safeguarding the environment promotes the well-being of people everywhere. For our residents, employees and communities to thrive, we must first protect our planet, which is why environmental sustainability is a core facet of each of our decisions and actions. We set meaningful, measurable goals—many of which we have already met well ahead of schedule—and are continually implementing technologies and programs that reduce our footprint and promote a more resilient world.

Diversity is not only the foundation of a socially and economically aware company. It’s also a source of innovation that increases productivity organization-wide. As we promote diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) while operating certifiably equitable properties, we have developed a management team that respects differences, improving team cohesion and allowing for business outperformance. We actively take steps ensuring our employees and residents feel safe and welcome to be their whole self at work and in their homes.

Veris Residential recognizes that our buildings are part of wider communities. By actively engaging in dialogue with neighborhood organizations, we have developed a comprehensive understanding of local needs and concerns. From funding public infrastructure in Port Imperial and Jersey City, New Jersey, as well as Malden, Massachusetts, to partnering with local and national philanthropic organizations throughout the Northeast, we have continuously worked to address the issues directly impacting our residents and their neighbors.

Our residents and employees’ wellness are of the utmost importance. With 100% of our managed properties and our corporate headquarters WELL Health-Safety Rated, we create and maintain spaces conducive to happy and healthy lives by following the latest best practices for air and water quality while investing in health-focused amenities and resources. From meticulous preparation for new move-ins and elevator purification to our leading employee benefits package, we promote well-being in everything we do.

Veris Residential has set ambitious goals to reduce our carbon footprint and increase our social impact as we seek to hold ourselves accountable. In recognition of our responsibility to contribute to broader efforts to create a more sustainable future for all, we have aligned our targets with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Over the past several years, we have met many of these targets ahead of schedule and made great progress toward others.
