We take great pride in our reputation for upholding the highest standards in the way we do business.
Our commitment to our business standards is a major reason why we’re the largest commercial real estate company in the world. Our employees don’t just work and live by these standards, they are the cornerstone of our RISE corporate values:
Respect: We act with consideration for others’ ideas and share information openly to inspire trust and encourage collaboration.
Integrity: No one individual, no one deal and no one client is bigger than our commitment to our company and what we stand for.
Service: We approach our clients’ challenges with enthusiasm and diligence, building long-term relationships by connecting the right people, capital and opportunities.
Excellence: We focus relentlessly on creating winning outcomes for our clients, employees and shareholders.
Our values are timeless and transcend all markets, service lines, languages and business cultures. They are present in everything we do and drive our success.
How we respond to and manage challenging conflicts is not just a set of corporate policies and procedures—it's a fundamental factor in defining our success. We take a transparent approach to our process by sharing our Managing Conflicts of Interest document with clients, professionals, investors and other stakeholders for a clear perspective on our point of view and framework for addressing conflicts in our business.
Sometimes, we or our client determines that a policy or agreement regarding confidentiality should be supplemented by more formal safeguards to impede or prohibit the flow of information within the firm. An “information barrier” is a set of procedures designed to segregate information and prevent the communication of that information by personnel in one part of CBRE with employees in another part of the business.
Standards of Business Conduct
CBRE is firmly committed to conducting business with the highest integrity and in compliance with the letter and spirit of the law. We are operating in a world where the rules that govern business conduct are more complex and demanding than ever. The Standards of Business Conduct that guide our everyday operations bring our RISE values to life and are a roadmap for our continued commitment to excellence in the global real estate industry.
Human Rights Policy
CBRE recognizes its responsibility to respect human rights in its operations, to promote an appropriate example and make a positive global impact. This policy specifically addresses CBRE’s commitment to promoting human rights on a global scale.
CBRE provides a confidential and anonymous method for employees and stakeholders to ask questions and raise concerns about its Standards of Business Conduct - the CBRE Ethics HelpLine. The CBRE Ethics HelpLine is operated 24/7 by EthicsPoint, an independent company. You may file a report with EthicsPoint either by calling a toll-free number and speaking with a trained specialist or by making an online web report.
