NAR provides strategies for sustainability that benefit members, associations, and communities. The REALTOR® Sustainability program conducts outreach to members, trade associations, and agencies to raise awareness and engagement in NAR sustainability efforts. The program also introduces corporate social responsibility and triple bottom line concepts into NAR’s decision-making practices, allowing NAR to educate and support sustainability efforts in real estate using our 10-year Sustainability and Resilience Plan’s pillars in environmental, social, governance, and resilience contexts.

Defining Sustainability and Resiliency at NAR

To support meaningful action around sustainability in the real estate sector, NAR adheres to the following definitions of sustainability and resilience:

SUSTAINABILITY: Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

RESILIENCE: The capacity to prepare for disruptions, recover from shocks and stresses, and adapt and grow from a disruptive experience.
