ESG Prime Badge

Highwoods is the recipient of the ISS (Institutional Shareholder Services) ESG Prime rating. As the name implies, ESG Prime is only awarded to select issuers/businesses who have demonstrated significant improvements and resilience across the board on ESG issues, in which it places them in the top tier of ESG performance among their industry peers. For us, our industry peer group constituted 378 global commercial real estate operators, and
Highwoods ranked in the top 20%.

ISS has recognized Highwoods for resiliency in two areas of ESG that we’ve purposely targeted one year ago – social and governance.
