ETHICS AND GOVERNANCE

Regency is committed to advancing DEI. In 2020, Lisa Palmer, our President and CEO, made the CEO Pledge for diversity and inclusion and we began developing and implementing a robust three- year DEI strategy. We also awarded gifts to further gender equality through partners such as Generation W. Center experience is a key focus at Regency. Our Operations team strives to make our centers safe, inclusive, dynamic environments for the surrounding neighborhoods and communities. In addition, we implement our green building standard, plan for resilience and drive sustainable resource use. Responsible environmental stewardship and pursuing sustainable operations has always been a key component of our Corporate Responsibility Program. We have ambitious long-term goals, with annual targets, to reduce our environmental impact. In 2021, we plan to develop a target and strategy for net-zero Greenhouse Gas emissions. Climate change is a significant issue for our nation and our planet. Our environmental targets demonstrate our commitment to combat climate change. We have undertaken a comprehensive analysis of the potential risks to our properties and business and are updating our Strategic Plan accordingly.
