Brookdale's Sustainability Mission

Often when people hear the word sustainability they naturally think about the physical environment. For Brookdale, sustainability means that and much more. It means caring about the larger environmental and social impacts of our operations. This commitment to sustainability matters to us, to our associates and most importantly, to our residents and their loved ones. This approach to sustainability reflects one of Brookdale’s core values – we care.  

Our sustainability mission focuses on the three primary areas of People, Places & Performance:

People - We exist to serve our residents and their families, and we seek to engage with our associates and all our key stakeholders to embrace our caring culture and develop trusted partnerships and innovative solutions that create optimized environments in which to live and work.

Places - We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our communities and operations through understanding, benchmarking and decreasing our energy, water, waste, and greenhouse gas emissions.

Performance - We strive to achieve superior performance and consistent operational excellence by creating economic value and driving continuous improvement, and we are committed to regularly reporting on our performance. 

The following pages provide extensive details about Brookdale’s concentrated efforts in each of these areas. Also, we encourage you to review the Brookdale 2016 Sustainability Report below for specific examples of these efforts over the past year.
