Issues to be addressed may include diversity and inclusion, community impact, stakeholder relations, health and safety, human rights and labor standards, tenant amenities, controversial tenants, and any other relevant issues at the discretion of the committee.



The PREA Social Impact Committee shall be comprised of approximately ten individuals, including two co-chairs of the committee. In addition to the ten individuals, the Executive Director of the PREA Foundation shall serve as an ex officio member of the committee. Best efforts will be made to create a committee that is diverse by gender and cultural identity, and include members from institutional investors, investment managers, consultants and, when appropriate, academics.

  • When appropriate, the committee may recommend best practices or provide examples to the broader membership of successful incorporation of social issues into real estate investments at either the portfolio or asset level.
  • When dealing with issues of diversity and inclusion within the real estate investment management industry, the committee will coordinate with the PREA Foundation to ensure no redundant efforts.
