Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2018
OUR COMMUNITIES BENEFIT PROMOTING COMMUNITY SOLIDARITY (413-1)
Around the world, we engage in our communities to improve the quality of life and reinforce our deep connections to our local cities and neighborhoods. Although our business is about real estate, our hearts are with the people who live and work in our communities, and we aim to make a tangible positive impact wherever we have a footprint. Our engagement takes different forms and focus around the world, partnering with local nonprofits or community organizations for amplified impact. Throughout our long history, our culture of local community service and engagement has included support for many organizations, including Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Covenant House, Girl Scouts of America, Habitat for Humanity, and Ronald McDonald House, to name just a few. In 2018, we formalized our commitment in the U.S. through our new Cushman & Wakefield Charitable Foundation, providing a more focused and formal channel of strategic philanthropic support. Local initiatives will still continue around the world.
Primary focus areas of our Charitable Foundation:
• STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) education • Affordable housing and the prevention of homelessness • After-school enrichment programs for underserved or at-risk youth
