Strategy and Themes

Value Creation Through Responsible Investment

As the premier lodging REIT and sustainability leader, we are committed to creating long-term value through investing responsibly in our business, environment, people and community. Our Corporate Responsibility program is centered around the concept of responsible investment—an overarching strategy that guides our focus and actions across our three main themes of Environmental Stewardship, Social Responsibility and Governance.

We believe that a disciplined and proactive approach to addressing critical ESG topics enables us to create long-term value for our stockholders, optimize our investment portfolio, maximize our human capital and maintain our position as a sustainability leader in the lodging REIT sector. Our management approach is driven by people, culture, policies, targets and performance monitoring to maximize the value from our investments of time, talent and financial resources. This approach directly supports Host’s business strategy and goals.
