Environmental Social Governance
Hilco Global has implemented ESG solutions for clients, investment partners and our employees for many years.
As an early adopter of Environmental, Social and Governance into both our business philosophy and operational processes, Hilco Global remains deeply committed to develop and implement business strategies that not only support our clients’ needs but also have a positive impact on the communities in which we do business around the world.
Sustainability is a firmwide passion. We actively support environmental sustainability through a wide range of activities.
- Investment partnerships and transactions
- Significant real estate remediation and urban development projects led by Hilco Redevelopment Partners in major metropolitan areas like Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, New Orleans, San Francisco, Jersey City, etc. These real estate projects meet and often exceed US and sustainability and carbon emissions standards.
- And through dozens of annual employee engagement and philanthropic programs
These initiatives often focus on minimizing the environmental impact of our client’s business operations by working with the management teams to reduce waste, conserve national resources, and to adopt more efficient processes that reduce detrimental emissions and pollution.
Our strategy seeks to implement investments that will lead to a significant, positive effect on local labor forces and economies. We believe that to have true economic and social impact we must promote social responsibility and encourage positive behaviors among employees and customers. Toward this end, we are dedicated to creating safe and inclusive working environments, supporting local communities, and carefully assessing the ethical implications associated with any potential business decisions.
Our worldwide initiative, “Hilco Helps” support causes and not-for-profit organizations that help enhance the lives and maximize the potential of the world’s most important assets: people.
In addition to millions of dollars of support (through in-kind and direct donations, marketing efforts and sponsorship), Hilco Helps programs provide internship opportunities to mentor and engage young people and involve our employees, who donative their time to relief efforts in disaster zones, churches, schools, and other settings around the world.See Hilco Helps
