Colliers is committed to socially and environmentally responsible business practices—the kind that keep our communities healthy while supporting long-term business success.


At Colliers, our goal is to raise the level of philanthropy within our company by supporting charities that our professionals and clients are passionate about. Our sponsorships range from donating volunteer hours to financial contributions. We give our people the freedom to support the groups that are important to them and their local communities.


With more than 200 LEED accredited professionals, Colliers expertise in developing sustainability strategies help our clients create healthier workplaces, which can improve an organization’s brand, employee and financial performance. Colliers is a Founding Global Partner of the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC). We act as an ambassador to the WorldGBC, provide leadership and strategic input for sustainability initiatives and play a leadership role in the formation of new Green Building Councils in many countries where none exist.

We are especially proud of Colliers’ success in creating national Green Building Councils around the world, including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Croatia, Indonesia, Peru, Russia, Singapore and the United Kingdom.


To help our clients reach these goals, we sell, lease and manage green space on behalf of landlords, and help tenants find, lease, build out and project manage green space. We also help certify both structural and commercial interior green buildings. 

Colliers’ global reach, extensive client base, distribution network, emphasis on knowledge leadership and our talented team of researchers, communicators, negotiators and implementers allows us to play a key role in the sustainability movement.


Our professional development backbone, Colliers University, offers more than 35 courses in sustainability and green building to further this mission. Courses include:
  • Building Green Services 1 – Commercial Investment Advisory
  • Green Leases
  • Business Case for Sustainability & Green Buildings
  • Green Occupancy
  • Energy Performance of Buildings
  • LEED® AP (accredited professional) and LEED green associate exam prep courses

We believe leadership in sustainability must start at home

We are developing and piloting a comprehensive system for measuring and reducing our carbon footprint as a company and educating our people to do the same at home.  Greening of operations is implemented at both the national and local levels, including our green office programs which are aimed at generating grassroots involvement and cultural transformation.  We also collaborate to implement leading green building solutions and share research, knowledge and best practices internationally.   

To Colliers, sustainability represents new opportunities for growth and vitality in business, society and our individual lives.  We are inspired to rise to the global challenge we all face today and are committed to helping improve the legacy of our global society.


Being Green Matters

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we’re proud to be a founding sponsor of the World Green Building Council. It’s the largest international organization influencing the green building marketplace.

Organizations supported

Our goal is to raise the level of awareness and social responsibility within our company. We identify organizations that need our support and give our people the freedom to support the projects and groups that are important to them and their local communities.

In addition to local giving campaigns, the Colliers USA Foundation provides financial and resource support to both national and international disaster relief efforts.

First Service Commits $10M for Immediate Relief After Sandy

FirstService Residential, the largest manager of residential properties in North America and a sister company to Colliers International, made $10 million immediately available to begin repairs on its 200 New York City and New Jersey-area properties affected by Hurricane Sandy. While insurance claims may take months to process, the fund will provide short-term loans for repairing more than 30,000 units, which are home to 80,000 residents.
