Environmental Sustainability

In response to ongoing global discussion about climate change and its impact on the natural environment, CBRE has committed to minimizing that impact for our company, clients and communities. Buildings are widely viewed as a significant contributor to carbon emissions, and as the world’s largest manager of commercial buildings CBRE has both a responsibility and an opportunity to influence the way buildings are built, sourced, managed, occupied and sold. This ability to drive sustainable real estate practices is a fundamental principal of our environmental leadership.

Guided by our Environmental Sustainability Policy, CBRE’s environmental strategy leverages 11 key areas of environmentally sound performance in our own operations and our client services. The policy provides a set of internal practices and programs that strengthen our own environmental commitment, reflect the best environmental practices we help clients adopt in their own real estate, and provide vital training and education to our professionals.

CBRE recognizes that a thoughtful approach to sustainability and its application to the built environment can create positive impact on our business, the communities in which we live and work, and the health of the planet.

    Associate Accountant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Very simple process and the interviewers made me feel comfortable. Only had 2 interviews, one over the phone and then the backpack to briefcase event. The B2B event was very insightful, learned a lot about CBRE, experienced a day in the life of an Associate Accountant with a mentor, and then closed with a an interview with 2 Accounting Managers.
