Cushman & Wakefield is a leading global real estate services firm that helps clients transform the way people work, shop, and live. In doing so, we strive to create a positive impact—on our employees and their families, local and global communities, and the natural environment. We work with stakeholders in more than 60 countries to create a sustainable, successful, responsible business, which includes understanding the way our activities affect other businesses, the environment, society, and the economy.
We are committed to managing corporate responsibility as an employer, prospective employer, and professional service provider to our clients. In this spirit, Cushman & Wakefield established a Corporate Responsibility Programme, which aims to formalise our commitment to responsible and sustainable operations.

Cushman & Wakefield has adopted operating principles which guide our activity in the following areas.
Corporate Responsibility Governance
Our Corporate Responsibility Governance Committee is comprised of global executive leadership from multiple departments and markets. These leaders set and manage Cushman & Wakefield’s sustainability policies and strategies.
We are committed to securing a better, more sustainable future and continually strive to develop and implement sustainable practices and innovation every day, in every location. Our Environmental Commitment gives structure to our award-winning sustainability programme.
With more than 43,000 employees in 60 countries, we realize innovation through our diversity. As an organization, we create a supportive environment where we cultivate our employees’ professional interests and aspirations, and help them channel that passion into outstanding client service.
Employee Health & Safety
A safe and healthy workplace is the fundamental right of every person, and a successful business is one that provides an environment that supports the security of employees, contractors, members of the public, and the work environment.
Ethics & Governance
Integrity and trust are the foundation for our business, and we are committed to putting our clients first and exceeding their expectations through ethical business practices. We are dedicated to achieving and maintaining the highest standards of ethical conduct and institutional integrity.
Our global, centralised procurement model enables us to ensure consistent sustainability practices, quality, and value for our clients. We leverage spend across the entire organization and ensure appropriate business standards are followed, while keeping our focus on cost-reduction.
Working within the Global Community
Investing time and resources is essential to our role as a responsible and positive contributor to local communities. We do so by contributing as an organisation, and encouraging volunteerism among our employees.
