The events of the past year have led to unprecedented times that continue to change rapidly month to month. While it is unclear how long the COVID-19 pandemic will last, we are committed to delivering healthy working environments for our tenants and employees, supporting a safe return to work and continuing to advance our environmental and community efforts.
Collectively, our ability to address shifting priorities, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues and global challenges is more important than ever before. Climate change and sustainability continue to be at the forefront and in response, countries and governments are setting ambitious targets. It is therefore important for us to take action to contribute to achieving these global targets, stay ahead of regulations and create long-lasting returns for our investors. It is also critical to embrace our differences and adopt diversity across our business. Being inclusive will foster an environment that supports our people and business to be successful. Fiera Real Estate has changed significantly in 2019, increasing our portfolio and entering into the UK market. In 2020, we focused on maintaining our well established ESG programs while advancing integration across our new assets and business units.
