CEO Luke J. Petherbridge Introduces the Report

Letter From Our CEO

Dear fellow stakeholders: As businesspeople, we all have important quarterly goals and five-year plans. At the same time, we want our children and their children to live in conditions that allow them to lead rewarding and fulfilling lives. This means we must build companies that contribute to environmental and social stability for decades and generations to come.

Amid this context, I am pleased to share Link’s second annual report on the company’s ESG initiatives. ESG is foundational to Link’s identity as a firm. We are proud of the progress we made in 2021, and know we have much work yet to do. We are focused on using our business as a force for good, starting locally with the communities in which we operate. Our scale and position at the intersection of industries, people and the environment give us the ability to power commerce while addressing collective challenges.

Link’s 2021 ESG Report

Link is uniquely positioned at the crossroads of industries, people and the environment. We believe this intersectionality—along with a growth strategy anchored in ESG priorities—gives us the ability to power the economy while addressing collective global challenges.

As a newer company, we are not weighed down by historical processes. Instead, we are building a new vision for industrial real estate with a focus on the communities in which we operate and invest. Our 2021 ESG report summarizes our environmental, social and governance progress during the calendar year.

Social

We promote a culture of care that puts people’s health and well-being at the center of everything we do — across our teams and in the communities where we work and live. These commitments align with who we are and how we do business.

Governance

At Link, our governance is rooted in accountability and transparency. In collaboration with Link’s Board of Directors, we create clearly defined goals and commitments that help us maintain the highest level of ethics and integrity, make informed decisions, and appropriately monitor performance and compliance.
