At NRP, our desire from the beginning has been to do our part to leave the world better than we found it by providing safe, high-quality, and thoughtfully designed communities that residents are proud to call home. In this context, we recognize the enormous value that environmental, social, and governance (ESG) policies and practices can bring to our residents, employees, and investors. Our strategy is to continue to grow our triple bottom line—people, profit, and planet—as we continue to create opportunities for our A+ Players and simultaneously fulfill our deepest desire to leave the world a better place than we found it. We strongly believe that continually advancing our ESG framework and mindset throughout all aspects of our business will lead to a stronger and more sustainable NRP.

J. David Heller, Founder & CEO, The NRP Group:
“At NRP, we have always strived to do well by doing good, and through out Environmental-Social-Governance (ESG) initiatives, we continue to pursue positive developments in our triple bottom line – People, Profits, and Planet.”
Our commitment to a sustainable environment.
At NRP, our desire from the beginning was to do our part to leave the world better than we found it by providing safe, high quality, and thoughtfully designed communities that residents are proud to call home. As part of our mission to help make the world a better place, we believe that adopting an ESG framework and mindset will lead to a stronger and more sustainable NRP. We are committed to analyzing, monitoring, improving, and communicating all aspects of our ESG performance indicators and have established two umbrella activation teams to pursue these goals: 1) Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee; and 2) Environmental Impact Committee (EIC).
Diversity, equity, and inclusion.
At NRP, we are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) in the workplace because we believe a wider range of viewpoints leads to a more robust and compelling company culture, better decision-making, and better business results. We work hard to create a diverse working environment where team members feel respected, valued, and encouraged to bring their unique perspectives to work every single day. We value diversity of viewpoints, life experience, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, and age, and we work to ensure that all team members have equal opportunities to grow and thrive.
NRP cares about our communities.
Cultivating a sense of community is a core value at The NRP Group. We believe communities are shaped by open communication between residents and our property and support staff, and productive relationships with the surrounding neighborhood. We actively seek opportunities in our own backyards and across the country to help individuals and families in need. The mission of NRPCares is to increase awareness, provide education, and coordinate programming to improve health and wellness for employees, residents, and other stakeholders throughout the extended NRP family.
The NRP Group believes that part of being a good corporate citizen is investing in the education of our future leaders to ensure the ongoing vitality of our industry. With this goal in mind, NRP is involved in several programs that serve college students and young professionals.
Cleveland State University
In 2019, The NRP Group made a historic gift to Cleveland State University (CSU) to expand education and research in real estate and property management. NRP and The Millennia Companies donated $1.2 million toward this vision. On September 20, 2022, CSU’s Monte Ahuja College of Business dedicated the space for the new NRP & Millennia Property Management Center and celebrated the launch of the Bachelor of Business Administration program in Property Management for the Fall 2022 semester. The new major will prepare graduates for careers in real estate and property management. A Minor in Property Management and Certificate in Real Estate & Property Management are also offered.
University of Michigan
Partnering with the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, The NRP Group is an active sponsor of the Living Business Leadership Experience (LBLE) course, part of the Ross Experiences in Action-Based Learning (REAL) portfolio. Beginning in fall 2022, the LBLE student group is collaborating with NRP’s development team to analyze the impact of stabilized affordable housing developments on local communities. NRP will use the project findings as part of its overall effort to develop high-quality affordable housing across the country.
Award Winning NRP Internship Program
At NRP, we are big believers in the power of internships to help shape the future of our industry. Although our interns come from diverse backgrounds, they all share a common desire—to learn about real estate and property management as a potential career. NRP interns are sourced through LinkedIn, Handshake, campus career fairs, student organizations, and referrals by current employees. NRP’s recent emphasis on bringing more diversity to its internship program has achieved noteworthy results: In 2022, 48% of NRP interns were people of color, and 30% were female. Based on 2021 data, 42% of interns convert to full-time NRP employees!
YouthBuild Apprenticeship Program
The NRP Group has created an apprenticeship program in collaboration with YouthBuild, a nonprofit that seeks to form partnerships primarily with construction vendors to work with opportunity youth to build the skill sets and mindsets that lead to lifelong learning, livelihood, and leadership. Justin Cornier was one of our YouthBuild Apprentices. After graduating high school, Justin Cornier was unsure of his next career steps. Encouraged by his dad to look into pursuing construction, he found YouthBuild. Through YouthBuild, Cornier earned key certifications to create a foundational understanding of construction and was then connected to an opportunity working with The NRP Group near his home in Lutz, Florida. Justin looks forward to growing with NRP. Said Cornier, “The most rewarding aspect of my experience with NRP is seeing the process of creating a development from start to finish. There’s a lot of satisfaction and pride that comes from knowing I’ve contributed to that outcome.”
