ESG Commitment

Sherman Associates has earned national buzz and acclaim. We are pursued by cities who seek our model, which makes us uniquely able to develop, finance, and operate environmentally conscious and socially impactful projects with a long-term vision and commitment to the community.

Environmental Sustainability

Many of our sustainability initiatives are inherent in our development strategy; the renovation and repurposing of existing historical structures and transit-oriented developments that incorporate mass transit, biking, and walking into commute patterns.

Social Impact

The nature of providing affordable housing to disadvantaged populations delivers equitable opportunities for individuals and families to thrive. It is what Sherman Associates does every day, but it has also woven into our why.

Sherman invests in one Community Outreach project every year. The projects speak to Sherman’s focus on community, environment, and historic preservation.
