SL GREEN REALTY CORP. 2019 SUSTAINABILITY REPORT
>1,000 SL Green Paid Employee Volunteer Hours VOLUNTEERISM At SL Green, we are only as strong as the com- munities in which we operate. The importance of community engagement is twofold — it strengthens local resiliency and provides social growth opportunities for our employees outside of the office. Our employees, assets, and business deliver the best results when they are integrated into the community and contribute positively to a greater societal purpose. Park Cleanup Every year SL Green employees celebrate Earth Day by cleaning up our backyard in New York City parks. Together with the Mayor’s Office and our tenants, we pick up litter, repaint infrastructure, and replant flowers and trees. American Corporate Partners Veteran Mentorship SL Green employees volunteer in a mentorship program to provide post-9/11 veterans with resumé review, interview prepa- ration, career exploration tips, and networking opportunities. Mentorship Program SL Green hosted 25 students from Robert F. Wagner Junior Secondary School, where the student- to-college-advisor ratio is 500:1. SL Green’s team dedicated it's time to empower New York’s future workforce by helping students with interviewing skills, resumé writing, and career counseling. Ladders for Leaders Since 2016, SL Green has partnered with the New York City Mayor’s Office to provide students with internship opportunities that develop workplace readiness skills and business etiquette.
Affordable Housing At SL Green’s ground-up residential development, 185 Broad- way, 30% of the newly constructed units will be rent regulated to ensure the affordability of housing on New York City’s rental market. This will be the first building to be constructed in Lower Manhattan under New York City’s Affordable New York Housing program. PHILANTHROPY Endowed with the time and resources to contrib- ute significantly to the New York City community, inspiring altruism among our employees is a priority for SL Green. We contributed $2 million in philanthropy and launched a charitable contribu- tion match program as a benefit for our employees. SL Green supports a variety of causes, including those aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals of promoting education and eliminating poverty and hunger.
Paid Volunteer Day We empower our employees to volunteer their time at organizations that align with their personal values:
