Impact

Ensuring the built environment supports a better tomorrow.

scroll

At LaSalle, we understand that the built environment has a significant impact both on the natural and social environment. In the past, this impact has not always been positive, but we aim to change that. Our impact work focuses on three areas: the people in the communities where we work, the planet we collectively share and the investment performance our clients expect.

Featured impact awards

We believe that better buildings can have a positive impact on the natural world when they embrace and make a place for nature. They can also help build better communities by promoting social cohesion and feelings of togetherness. And when they are well run and maintained by experienced professionals, they can provide the returns investors need. 

We also recognize that strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices aren’t simply the right thing to do, their long-term positive outcomes, when properly applied, can have a positive influence on investment performance. Our ESG management framework focuses on four key areas where we believe we can have the strongest, most immediate effects: climate, communities, resources and nature. We tailor this approach to each fund and each asset, working to protect and enhance financial returns today and in the future.
