Business Partner Code of Conduct
Our mission is to facilitate equitable and sustainable access to homeownership and quality affordable rental housing across America.
We understand that we can only achieve this by working closely with business partners who share our commitment to high ethical standards and who operate in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
Our Business Partner Code of Conduct outlines the principles we expect all business partners to uphold. We are committed to working with business partners to understand their maturity against the Business Partner Code of Conduct and help them with their progress towards aligning with the principles.
Ethical business practices
We hold ourselves to high standards of ethical conduct, and we expect our business partners to do the same.
Diversity and inclusion
We actively invest in building a diverse workforce and an inclusive work environment that reflect the communities we serve — in terms of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, and physical or mental disability. We expect our business partners to join us in prioritizing diversity and inclusion across workforce and supply chains and strongly encourage the implementation of the principles outlined below.
We believe that environmental sustainability and climate resiliency are vital to the safety and security of the U.S. housing system. We are committed to supporting more efficient and sustainable ways to build, heat, cool, power, and provide water to single-family and multifamily properties. Given our unique position in the U.S. housing finance industry, we have a duty to lead with our actions. We encourage our business partners to actively support a healthy and sustainable environment by implementing the principles outlined below.
Equitable and sustainable access to housing
We are committed to creating equitable, sustainable access to homeownership and quality, affordable rental housing across America. If you are involved in housing, housing development, housing finance, mortgage lending, mortgage servicing, property management, appraisals, housing counseling, securitization, and other community-related services, please join us in our commitment to the principles outlined below.
