SVC’s business strategy incorporates a focus on sustainable approaches to operating its properties in a manner that benefits the company’s shareholders, tenants and the communities in which its properties are located. As a REIT, SVC is prohibited by tax law from operating its hotel properties and all of its other properties are leased to third parties pursuant to which leases those third party tenants assume operating responsibilities for their properties. However, SVC encourages its managers and tenants to operate its properties in ways that improve the economic performance of their operations, while simultaneously managing energy and water consumption, as well as greenhouse gas emissions.

SVC’s environmental sustainability and community engagement strategies are primarily implemented by its managers and tenants.

SVC’s Board of Trustees is comprised of approximately 29% women and 14% members of underrepresented communities.
