Environmental Sustainability

Pursuing sound and effective practices.

As a leading owner of seniors housing and medical office buildings, we support and apply measurable sustainability practices
and standards. Sustainability is good for the environment and our business – creating lasting economic efficiencies, while
preserving and protecting the planet.

Our accomplishments are being recognized and honored. Ventas was named 2015 Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark's (GRESB) Global and North American Healthcare Sector Leader and was awarded their Green Star recognition in both 2014 and 2015 for improving the energy efficiency of its seniors housing and medical office building portfolios. The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) also awarded Ventas its 2014 Health Care “Leader in the Light Award,” the highest achievement for healthcare real estate companies in recognition of superior and sustained energy use practices. Ventas is a proud member of the FTSE4GOOD Sustainability Index Series and the MSCI Global Sustainability Index.

That’s not just excellence. That’s Excellence. Sustained.®
