Our environmental initiatives focus on reducing our energy usage (electricity and natural gas), increasing our waste diversion through recycling and composting, and decreasing our reliance on water. We are also investing in renewable energy sources by procuring green energy plans when available and evaluating renewable energy credits and the use of solar panels, which will in turn reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint in the future.


Our social initiatives encompass Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), for which Camden formed a Committee led by our Chairman & CEO Ric Campo. He has signed the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion Pledge and the Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Network CRE Pledge for Action, further highlighting our commitment to enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. In addition, we are working to create further opportunities for stakeholder engagement with team members, residents, and shareholders.


Our governance initiatives include published policies and statements on topics such as Sustainability, Equal Opportunity Employment, and Proxy Access. We updated our Human Rights Statement in 2023, and are currently working to enhance our corporate governance policies, address our position on climate risk and change, and strengthen our company's environmental policies.
