Corporate Social Responsibility
Hunt’s Environmental Social & Governance (ESG) vision drives us to achieve continuous improvement and remain a leader in corporate responsibility in the sectors and businesses in which we operate. We endeavor to live up to our stakeholders’ expectations through resilience, transparency, value creation, and giving back to our communities.
We will evaluate sustainable project development strategies to include embodied carbon procurement, materials of concern policy, and an operational-phase impact reduction policy.
We will continue developing, constructing, and financing a variety of utility-scale solar projects and large-scale transmission line infrastructure for renewable energy projects.
We will complete a climate risk assessment and management framework that identifies and quantifies physical, regulatory, and financial risks ssociated with climate change and integrate it into our enterprise risk management system and due diligence processes.
We will complete in-depth GHG accounting of all portfolio and affiliated companies to look for opportunities to reduce carbon emissions and measure and mitigate the carbon impact at the corporate and asset management levels.
We will continue to make investments in emerging climate-related technologies both directly and through focused funds. These include but are not limited to investments in technologies related to renewable energy, grid stability, battery storage, water heating systems, and sustainable materials.
We will continue to serve a critical social need by providing high-quality, affordable homes which foster local economic growth and thriving communities. Hunt is one of the largest players in the industry as an owner, asset manager, and property manager of affordable housing communities across the U.S.
We will improve our human capital and labor resources governance by evaluating policies and practices to determine unconscious bias, areas of improvement in our employment policies and practices, identification of training, and corporate level support for best practices in Human Capital Management.
We will continue our long-standing practice of policies that focus on employee inclusion and diversity, including a corporate-wide Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Policy and Program that includes training sessions held at every level, an external audit of these policies, and recommendations for improvement.
We will continue to analyze, integrate, and implement an enterprise-wide ESG program that is focused on and adapted to its evolving business footprint, risk, opportunity, and value creation for all key stakeholders. As part of our governance, we will conduct an annual ESG evaluation.
Hunt has strong partnerships with for-profit and non-profit organizations across the country in the communities in which we operate.
The mission of the Woody and Gayle Hunt Family Foundation is to support efforts that create economic prosperity and strengthen the competitiveness of the Borderplex region, an area encompassing El Paso County, Texas, Southern New Mexico, and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, México. The Foundation also supports organizations whose programs impact the state of Texas, and the nation as a whole. The Foundation’s giving is focused in six key areas: the arts and local heritage, education, economic development, healthcare, quality of life, and elevating the borderplex region.
In addition to the Foundation's work, Hunt is proud to provide sponsorship support to organizations and events that enhance our communities in the areas of education, economic development, military and military family projects, healthcare, and quality-of-life initiatives.
A culture of supporting our community is encouraged throughout the Hunt organization. Our employees are actively engaged in the communities in which Hunt operates or has a presence.
