A critical element of what we’re building is a sustainable future for everyone
It takes a strong conviction about the future to do what we do every day—to develop a bold vision for what could be and then strategically invest and innovate to make it possible.
At Beacon, sustainability has always been a part of that bold vision for the future. But today, we face planet-scale challenges. So our strategy to achieve that vision has never been more important.
Our environmental, social good, governance, and resilience goals underpin every element of our process—from building selection and planning, to construction and management. We’ve set ambitious emissions reduction targets and are taking tangible steps in every project to build healthier ecosystems, thriving communities, vibrant workplaces, and a future that works for everyone.

When we acquired the property we didn’t just see potential in transforming the buildings—we also had our eye on the parking lot. The site was perfectly suited for a solar carport, which we knew would benefit our tenants, partners, and the planet.
