The Corporate Governance practices of CBRE included in this section are designed to strengthen the Board of Directors' oversight of management and to serve the long-term interests of our shareholders, employees and other stakeholders.

Our Corporate Governance practices reflect the requirements of applicable securities laws, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the New York Stock Exchange listing requirements and CBRE Group's own vision of good governance practices.

CBRE's Corporate Governance Guidelines have been adopted by the Board of Directors to promote the effective functioning of the Board and to assist the Board in fulfilling its responsibilities. The Guidelines include:

  • Director Qualification Standards
  • Director Responsibilities
  • Director Access to Management and Independent Advisors
  • Director Compensation
  • Director Orientation and Continuing Education
  • Management Succession
  • Annual Performance Evaluations
  • Board Committees
  • Further Corporate Governance Guideline Recommendations

*CBRE’s Standards of Business Conduct was completely revised in 2021 to make it easier for our global and varied workforce of more than 100,000 employees to read and understand. The document continues to emphasize our RISE values of respect, integrity, service, and excellence and the responsibility of all of our personnel and board members to act ethically and adhere to our Standards of Business Conduct. The revised document includes more examples of real-life situations that answer common questions about our policies and standards, including procedures for handling of any concerns about potential misconduct in our workplace, a glossary of unfamiliar terms, and a keyword phrase that employees can use to find more information on the CBRE Employee Intranet.
