Seeking to enhance value with responsible investing

Clarion looks to incorporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles, as we believe they play a vital role in providing a path forward to a more sustainable and equitable future. 
"We believe that our sustainability initiatives have strengthened the profile of our assets, improving investment performance while reducing our environmental footprint."

— Karen Mahrous, Senior Vice President & Head of ESG

Investment in real estate is speculative and involves significant risk. For more information about certain of the material risks and limitations associated with Clarion Partners’ investment advisory products, strategies and services, please see Clarion’s current Form ADV Part 2A brochure, which is available on the SEC’s Investment Adviser Public Disclosure website at Investors should consider their investment objectives, and it is strongly suggested that the reader seek his or her own independent advice in relation to any investment, financial, legal, tax, accounting or regulatory risks and evaluate their own risk tolerance before investing.

This material does not constitute investment advice, nor does it constitute an offer in any product or strategy offered by Clarion Partners LLC or Clarion Partners Europe, and should not be viewed as a current or past recommendation to buy or sell any securities. Any specific investment referenced may or may not be held in a Clarion Partners client account. It should not be assumed that any investment, in any property or other asset, was or will be profitable.

All Clarion Partners LLC and Clarion Partners Europe statistics, data and charts, including but not limited to assets under management (AUM), ESG data, sector data and property data, as well as data related to our investors, tenants and employees, are as of March 31, 2024 unless otherwise noted.

Risks Related To Environmental, Social, And Governance (“ESG”) Matters. Clarion Partners can choose, in its discretion, whether to take into account ESG considerations in its investment decision-making, as and to the extent consistent with its fiduciary obligations, applicable law, and the relevant governing documents and investment management agreements of its clients (as applicable). In certain circumstances, due to ESG considerations, Clarion Partners may not make or not recommend the making of investments when it would otherwise have done so, which could adversely affect the performance of a client’s portfolio. On the other hand, Clarion Partners may determine not to take such considerations into account. The extent to which Clarion Partners takes ESG considerations into account varies from client portfolio to client portfolio, based on, among other things, the portfolio’s investment objective, investment strategies, and investment restrictions, as outlined in the relevant governing documents and investment management agreements of its clients (as applicable) as well as applicable law.

Clarion Partners is dependent upon ESG information and data obtained through voluntary or third-party reporting that may be incomplete, inaccurate, or unavailable, which could cause Clarion Partners to incorrectly assess a potential investment’s ESG attributes and/or related risks and opportunities. While ESG is only one of the many factors Clarion Partners might consider in making an investment, there is no guarantee that Clarion Partners will consider such factors at all or that Clarion Partners will successfully implement and make investments that create positive ESG impact while enhancing value and achieving financial returns. ESG initiatives may not achieve the desired financial and social results, or the market or society may not view any such changes as desirable. Any successful engagement efforts on the part of Clarion Partners will depend, in part, on Clarion Partners’ skill in properly identifying and analyzing material ESG data and factors, and their potential impact on value. There can be no assurance that any ESG techniques employed will be successful.
