At Simon, we define and implement sustainability initiatives that consider all aspects of our business.  This approach enhances the communities in which we operate and also generates long-term shareholder value by embracing opportunities, improving the bottom line, and mitigating environmental and social risks.

Our Sustainability vision is to lead the way in sustainable retail real estate development and operations in the U.S.  We have implemented sustainability into our business, from how we plan, develop, and operate our properties to how we do business with our customers, engage with our communities, and create a healthy, safe, productive, and positive work environment for our employees.

The four key areas of our sustainability framework are:

Creating Sustainable Centers
