Sabra Health Care REIT, Inc. (“Sabra,” or “we”) (Nasdaq: SBRA) today released its third annual Sustainability Report.
The report showcases our programs, policies and initiatives that support our environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities of environmental stewardship; diversity, equity and inclusion; human capital management; protection of health, wellness and safety of our stakeholders; engagement and collaboration with our operators and tenants; cybersecurity; corporate governance; and community service. These ESG principles are intrinsically tied to our objective to drive shareholder value by operating efficiently, sustainably and with our stakeholders’—investors, tenants, teammates and the communities in which we invest—best interests in mind.
“It was a year of forward leaps to advance our ESG framework and E-Initiative Roadmap, both in scope and transparency,” said Rick Matros, Sabra’s Chief Executive Officer, President and Chair of the Board. “The investments we’ve made in our properties, people and tenants will improve the lives of the residents and working environments for our teammates and the staff of the facilities that we own. Supporting our operators remains a major focus, and with the launch of our Green Links Fund, we are working collaboratively with our NNN tenants to track and report their energy and water efficiency improvements as well as fund initiatives at their properties.”
Key accomplishments include:
- Established robust ESG utility collection and data repository, including over 238 properties across more than 25 managed and NNN operators, while expanding integrated climate risk ratings and scenario analysis in originations and asset management.
- Launched an initial $5M Green Links Fund designed to provide our NNN tenants access to capital to fund energy and water efficiency initiatives.
- Upheld our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, including providing a collaborative culture and workplace, competitive compensation and supporting work-life balance for our team.
- Initiated and co-sponsored WISE Forum event to bring like-minded healthcare REITs and solution providers together to collaboratively address critical industry issues, including ESG-related property and medical technologies that could further bolster tenants’ health and wellness objectives.
Sabra remains committed to furthering our ESG efforts to promote safer and healthier environments for our teammates and residents and to improve outcomes and patient experience.
Sabra’s 2022 Sustainability Report is available on the company’s website.
