Avison Young showing progress in integrating sustainability criteria into its own and clients’ planning, decision-making processes and operations


By Mark E. Rose (Toronto)

Avison Young is very proud to release its fourth annual Global Citizenship report https://avisonyoung.uberflip.com/i/1013132-ay-globalcitizenshipreport-aug2018-final 

Global Citizenship is the umbrella name of our firm’s corporate social responsibility, sustainability and philanthropy strategy.

The report provides a comprehensive picture of who we are, how we work and what we care about. It’s also an opportunity to recognize the work of our talented and committed team.

Our Global Citizenship strategy encompasses our commitment to good corporate governance, operational sustainability, corporate and employee philanthropy, diversity and inclusion, continuous training, and employee health and wellness, including mental health.

While helping clients on their sustainability journey is a clear priority, our approach also leverages our differentiated structure – and our caring and collaborative culture – to make a broader, lasting contribution to our communities.

Since introducing this annual report in 2014, we’ve been embedding Global Citizenship in the fabric of our organization. We’re getting better at integrating sustainability criteria into our planning, decision-making processes and operations – and at helping our clients do the same.

It’s clear that our approach resonates with clients who, like us, want to be both financially successful and socially and environmentally responsible.
