CBRE is a leading global service provider with the most recognizable brand in the commercial real estate industry, providing strategic solutions for our clients with an unmatched platform of products and services worldwide. Our success is the result of many things—the knowledge, experience and extraordinary talent of our employees; the wisdom of our strategy; the quality of our services; and, above all, our high standards of professionalism and business conduct.

It has taken generations for CBRE to achieve our preeminent position in the global real estate marketplace. In the broader business community, we've seen many times how quickly ethical failure can cripple a successful company—even those whose industry leadership was believed to be unassailable. Thus, we must remain consistently vigilant and proactive about enforcing our standards of conduct.

In 2004, we adopted our Standards of Business Conduct as the highest policy of the Company. While these standards have been refreshed in 2011 to reflect the way CBRE and the business environment have evolved, the core ethical foundation of CBRE remains robust and our stalwart support for the Ethics and Compliance Program continues to be one of our primary responsibilities as a Board.

We are requiring that everyone who represents CBRE read, understand and adhere to our Standards of Business Conduct. You should expect no less from your colleagues, your senior management and us. Each of us is personally responsible for maintaining the highest standards of business conduct to ensure we continue to differentiate ourselves as the Company that global clients trust with their real estate strategies.

We appreciate your support.
