Our Commitment to a Meaningful Impact

At RISE, we believe improving lives is a good investment. Our approach to ESG isn’t just a set of polished policies put together because the market expects it—it’s a living, breathing, changing representation of our values and a natural impact of the work we do for the people we serve.

Through ethical business practices and sustainability, we redefine return on investment—so your investment in RISE is an investment you can feel good about.

At RISE, we have the privilege of providing thousands of families the place they call home. While many businesses provide products and services directly to customers, few of those have a bigger effect on well-being than housing.

Because we believe improving lives is a good investment, caring for our residents and the communities we’re a part of is key. The best way to measure the quality of our residents’ living experience is through resident feedback—and we’re proud to have exceptional reviews across the board.

"RISE Properties and Thrive Communities took over Artesia and made amazing improvements to the property. They helped me with issues by 'doing the right thing,' as they said to me. I want to thank them all for treating this community as 'people' more than a business."

Environment

At RISE, we provide more than 6,200 homes to residents—and the water and energy it takes to make those homes livable and comfortable has an environmental impact. That’s why we’ve implemented water- and energy-saving capital improvements throughout our communities, along with providing opportunities for residents to make easy decisions to conserve resources and recycle themselves.

Each asset we acquire goes through extensive due diligence with environmental impacts in mind. In addition to assessing for environmental risks such as contamination, and ensuring adequate resident access to recycling, we also assess the properties' total water and energy usage. When feasible, we target solutions to reduce 15% of total water usage and 15% of total energy usage. Water savings are achieved by installing low-flow water fixtures such as faucet aerators, showerheads, and toilets. Energy savings are achieved through LED lighting retrofits, installing energy-efficient appliances, insulating pipes, among others. We are also installing electric vehicle charging stations where possible. We’ve installed thousands of various efficiency units throughout our portfolio to date and are committed to continuing our efforts.

As a result of our improvements, we’re saving an estimated annual:

Governance

From the beginning, RISE has been committed to upholding the highest ethical standards to ensure responsible investing. We aren't capital markets people who bought apartments—we're apartment people who started a fund so our friends and family could invest in apartments. Because of this, transparency and alignment with our investors was a priority from day one.
