BETHESDA, MD BUSINESS WIIRE)–Pebblebrook Hotel Trust, NYSE: PEB (the “Company”) announced today that it published its third annual Environmental Sustainability and Social Responsibility Report. This report covers the Company’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) performance for 2020 and its commitment towards environmentally sustainable business practices and social accountability to its employees and stakeholders.

“While 2020 was undoubtedly one of the most difficult years in our industry’s history, we made progress with our environmental and social governance programs,” stated Jon E. Bortz (Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer at Pebblebrook Hotel Trust). We are the largest owner of urban and resort-style hotels in the United States and we are committed to reducing our environmental footprint as well as fostering inclusive growth within our company, our portfolio, and beyond. We made significant progress in 2020 with new initiatives such as the establishment of our Racial Equity and Inclusion Team. To celebrate diversity and empower women, we also opened Hotel Zena Washington DC. We are looking forward to continuing our sustainability efforts, and thoughtful business practices, despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pebblebrook’s 2021 Environmental Sustainability & Social Responsibility Report aligns with international reporting standards, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (“GRI”) and includes disclosures from Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (“SASB”) and, for the first-time, reflects Pebblebrook’s commitment to understanding, planning, and managing sustainability risks through the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (“TCFD”). Pebblebrook also pledged support for inclusive and diverse workplaces and committed to the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion.

Raymond D. Martz Chief Financial Officer at Pebblebrook Hotel Trust stated that “this past year, we have taken actionable steps in order to strengthen the support for our communities.” “We limited our participation in community and voluntary activities in 2020 because of the pandemic. However, our property team members made an impact by providing food and donations for local organizations. We are aware of the profound impact that the hospitality industry has on the communities where we live and work. Therefore, we will continue to implement and expand our ESG program.
