ESG Oversight

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee (NCGC) oversees our ESG initiatives and strategies, which includes the climate goal setting and education of our Board. Updates are provided quarterly to the NCGC and at least annually to the full Board.

Our executive leadership promotes and champions Sun's initiatives and strategies through participation in our Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Committee, IDEA Council, and ESG Steering Committee. This is also achieved by including key messages in communications and regular meetings with our ESG Leads.

Daily oversight and direction are managed by our Director of Sustainability and Director of Social Responsibility in coordination with ESG Leads embedded within our portfolio of properties.

Risk Management

ESG risks are monitored through dedicated processes, such as our environmental management system. We also consider these factors as part of our broader enterprise risk management program. Sun recognizes the impact of environmental, social, and governance risks on our long-term business strategy so we have taken steps to reflect this in our approach to risk management. Our Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) team oversees and reviews Sun's evaluation of material ESG risks and opportunities to ensure important ESG topics are integrated into our business strategy and daily operations.
