From the start, we have felt a responsibility to the future and a drive to do things better.

Sustainability has been at the heart of the firm since mechanical engineer Gerald D. Hines founded the company in 1957. Over the decades, we have continuously partnered with leading manufacturers, universities and engineers to pioneer new approaches and technologies that elevate the efficiency and value of every building, every investment. At Hines, sustainability is not a means to an end, but an ongoing practice that fosters communities and cities around the world.
