Our ESG mission
Help build a better world.

At NRP, our desire from the beginning has been to do our part to leave the world better than we found it by providing safe, high-quality, and thoughtfully designed communities that residents are proud to call home. In this context, we recognize the enormous value that corporate responsibility policies and practices can bring to our residents, employees, and investors. Our strategy is to continue to grow our triple bottom line—people, planet, and profit—as we continue to create opportunities for our A+ Players and simultaneously fulfill our deepest desire to leave the world a better place than we found it. We strongly believe that continually advancing our corporate responsibility framework and mindset throughout all aspects of our business will lead to a stronger and more sustainable NRP.

Our commitment to a sustainable environment.

At NRP, our desire from the beginning was to do our part to leave the world better than we found it by providing safe, high quality, and thoughtfully designed communities that residents are proud to call home. As part of our mission to help make the world a better place, we believe that adopting a corporate responsibility framework and mindset will lead to a stronger and more sustainable NRP. We are committed to analyzing, monitoring, improving, and communicating all aspects of our corporate responsibility performance indicators and have established two umbrella activation teams to pursue these goals: 1) Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee; and 2) Environmental Impact Committee (EIC).

People and Culture

At NRP, we are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace because we believe a wider range of viewpoints leads to a more robust and compelling company culture, better decision-making, and better business results. We work hard to create a working environment where team members feel respected, valued, and encouraged to bring their unique perspectives to work every single day. We value diversity of viewpoints, life experience, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, and age, and we work to ensure that all team members have equal opportunities to grow and thrive.

NRP Cares

NRP cares about our communities.

Cultivating a sense of community is a core value at The NRP Group. We believe communities are shaped by open communication between residents and our property and support staff, and productive relationships with the surrounding neighborhood. We actively seek opportunities in our own backyards and across the country to help individuals and families in need. The mission of NRPCares is to increase awareness, provide education, and coordinate programming to improve health and wellness for employees, residents, and other stakeholders throughout the extended NRP family.

Partners in education.

The NRP Group believes that part of being a good corporate citizen is investing in the education of our future leaders to ensure the ongoing vitality of our industry. With this goal in mind, NRP is involved in several programs that serve college students and young professionals.

Cleveland State University

In 2019, The NRP Group made a historic gift to Cleveland State University (CSU) to expand education and research in real estate and property management. NRP and The Millennia Companies donated $1.2 million toward this vision. The university began offering these courses and degree programs in the Fall 2022 Semester, and in Summer 2023, the first student graduated from the program. In the 2023-2024 school year, Cleveland State University is offering a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in Property Management, a Property Management Minor, and a Real Estate and Property Management Certificate. As of the Fall 2023 semester, there are 8 students majoring in Property Management, 17 students pursuing the minor, 34 students enrolled in the certificate program, and 120 students enrolled across all property management courses for the semester.

University of Michigan

Partnering with the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, The NRP Group is an active sponsor of the Living Business Leadership Experience (LBLE) course, part of the Ross Experiences in Action-Based Learning (REAL) portfolio. The 2023-24 LBLE student group is collaborating with NRP’s development team to research incentive programs to implement sustainable energy sources at affordable developments. NRP will use the project findings as part of its overall effort to develop high-quality affordable housing across the country.

Award Winning NRP Internship Program

At NRP, we are big believers in the power of internships to help shape the future of our industry. Although our interns come from diverse backgrounds, they all share a common desire—to learn about real estate and property management as a potential career. NRP interns are sourced through LinkedIn, Handshake, campus career fairs, student organizations, and referrals by current employees. NRP’s recent emphasis on bringing more diversity to its internship program has achieved noteworthy results: In 2023, 56% of NRP interns were people of color, and 25% were female. 81% of the 2023 internship class were offered the opportunity to have a full-time or additional internship role with NRP in 2024.

YouthBuild Apprenticeship Program

The NRP Group has created an apprenticeship program in collaboration with YouthBuild, a nonprofit that seeks to form partnerships primarily with construction vendors to work with opportunity youth to build the skill sets and mindsets that lead to lifelong learning, livelihood, and leadership. Osmar Avila was one of our YouthBuild Apprentices and is now a Field Engineer with NRP in San Antonio. Osmar has appreciated the mentorship, both formal and informal, that he has received from his NRP managers and colleagues. They encouraged him when the learning curve was challenging, and they empowered him to speak with the subcontractors as the person in charge. Osmar shared that his personal motto is to “step forward into growth” and his journey from YouthBuild Apprentice to Field Engineer has been emblematic of his learning path at NRP.
