Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2016



CORPORATE OPERATIONS—LEADING THE WAY The vast majority of our business operations are located in leased office space in multi-tenant buildings. As a tenant, we do not have authority over numerous property policies including certain abilities to track energy use, water use, air emissions, or recycling efforts. While this is a limiting factor, we are ceaselessly working to minimize our impact and uncover innovative solutions for more accurate tracking. WORKPLACE STANDARDS With an eye towards a more sustainable future, we are actively consolidating our offices to support the ongoing transformation of our firm following the global merger. In 2016, we made progress on a significant initiative led by our internal Corporate Real Estate Services team to embed sustainable design and construction processes, as well as cutting-edge technology, into our corporate workplace standards—specifically implementing LEED furniture products, circadian lighting, mobile working capabilities, and cloud- based technology. We believe that the Cushman & Wakefield office should be more than a place we go each day—it should represent the latest thinking in workplace strategy and serve as the hub for our people, culture, clients, and brand. We aim to provide our employees with a supportive and nurturing office environment that fosters collaboration and creativity by applying: • Dynamic, efficient office layouts that align various functions, departments, and teams • Flexible workspace options to accommodate a range of working styles including heads-down and collaborative work • Cutting-edge technology designed to encourage collaboration, productivity, and efficiency across our platform and markets • Wellness initiatives focused on employee work-health balance We look forward to reaching even greater heights as a company and community as we continue to introduce our industry-leading workplace standards in Cushman & Wakefield offices around the globe in the coming year.
