Our vision

At Dream, we believe that building a better community is bigger than our organization and the assets we own and develop – it encompasses society as a whole and the cities where we live and work. Through every aspect of our planning, investments and culture, we embrace the best practices in sustainability, promoting diversity, health and wellness in everything we do while generating attractive financial returns.

Environmental

We strive to continuously improve the resource efficiency of our operations, lower any undesired impacts associated with our activities and contribute positively to the transition to a low carbon economy.

Social

We care for our people, tenants, partners and communities by embracing a diverse and inclusive workplace, promoting leading health and safety practices and building inclusive, attainable and sustainable communities.

Governance

We maintain the highest ethical business standards, which includes how we manage and mandate sustainability.

These values provide the foundation for our corporate culture, our investment philosophy, how we do business and are heavily ingrained in our DNA. At Dream, we bring passion, creativity, and innovation to every project and investment.
