Social Investment

Beyond Rising’s dedication to environmental responsibility, we recognize our role to ensure the greater social well-being of those interacting with our assets and corporate culture. We’re steadfast in our mission to foster a workplace that thrives on inclusivity, where every individual feels valued, heard, and empowered to give their best and lead by example–guiding our vendors and consultants with the highest standards of equity, health, safety, and human capital investment. To truly make a difference, we not only create policies but actively engage, educate, and plan for impactful change. At Rising, our investment is as much in the bricks and mortar as it is in the communities we serve.

Corporate Governance

To foster mutual growth, we prioritize diverse and accountable governance, always upholding the highest ethical standards. Our dedication to transparency is a cornerstone of our operations, particularly within our IMPACT strategy. By aligning our practices with our promises, Rising’s team ensures our ESG initiatives are supported by action and quantifiable results.


Rising’s Senior Leadership Team directs and endorses the corporate policies, programs, and initiatives that support the development and growth of ESG initiatives. Recognizing the importance of ESG in the modern landscape, we took a proactive step in October 2019 by establishing our IMPACT Task Force. This committee bridges the communication between our executive team, partners, staff, and the communities we serve. The IMPACT Task Force meets regularly and conducts various assessments on operations, policies, and procedures to implement new initiatives, ensuring a dynamic, informed, and inclusive approach to our governance.
