Environmental, Social & Governance
We are continuously seeking to improve our financial and environmental performance and thereby reduce the environmental impact of our operations.
By improving our portfolio’s operating efficiencies by reducing energy and water usage, we, in turn, provide cost savings to our tenants. Sealy aims to work with our tenants to support their sustainability objectives to reduce energy and water consumption and overall operating costs. Where appropriate, Sealy also seeks to incorporate the following sustainable features::
- Upgraded Lighting Systems
- Natural Lighting Alternatives
- Energy-Efficient Roofs
- Water Conservation Initiatives
- Energy-Efficient Systems
Sealy regularly evaluates our portfolio to identify potential ENERGY STAR candidates and has implemented a program to help guide our properties through ENERGY STAR certification. No matter where you see it, the ENERGY STAR label means the same thing — an energy-efficient top performer that saves money without sacrificing performance.
The principals of Sealy & Company genuinely lead by example in philanthropic endeavors.
The company encourages and supports employees who donate their time to industry, charitable, and community-sponsored activities so much that we developed our “Networking With a Purpose” program to encourage community and professional involvement. Employees who participate in Networking With a Purpose program are entered into a prize drawing each quarter.
Each regional office selects an organization to support each year with monetary sponsorship and investing time from team members. Examples of past organizations Sealy has supported are:
- CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate)
- Ronald McDonald Charities
- Regional Food Bank (North Texas, St. Louis, Oklahoma, and Glen-Ed)
- Kids’ Meals
- Meals on Wheels
- Dream Rydes
- Holy Angels
- The Gingerbread House
At Sealy, our core values of character and integrity run deep throughout our organization. Our philosophy is based on doing what we believe is right for clients. Our decisions are grounded on a long-term perspective, which we believe aligns our goals with the interests of our clients. We continually seek to identify and implement better and best practices. We employ and customize cutting-edge and easy-to-use systems that manage risk, create efficiencies, and promote transparency within the operating platform and our community of investors.
Sealy & Company has partnered with industry leaders to provide additional layers of transparency and accountability. For over 25 years Sealy has utilized independent risk management consulting firms to provide practical and creative risk management solutions. Our investments undergo an annual audit and the audit report is made available to our investors. Our investments are also structured to have a Management Committee provide oversight and guidance. The Management Committee for each investment vehicle is comprised primarily of independent members coupled with minor representation from Sealy Executive members. Sealy & Company has partnered with one of the big 4 accounting firms for tax consulting and the completion of a SOC report. In addition, Sealy & Company has completed numerous independent due diligence reports.
