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.

Social impact

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."

Giving

We’re not just passionate about serving our residents in their homes – we see them as important members of the broader community, too. We’ve committed to giving time and funding to organizations that directly serve the communities in which we operate. RISE has committed to giving 0.05% of its Net Asset Value annually, which based on estimated growth is projected to total over $1.5 million in five years.

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. We’re committed to continually rethinking all areas of our business to find ways to effectively reduce, reuse, and recycle.

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

5.2 million
gallons of water

58,000 kWh
of energy

29.4 metric tons
of carbon

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.
