Our mission is to be the premier stewards of capital in the lodging industry, providing superior returns to our shareholders by investing in hotels where we can add value through capital investment, hotel repositioning, and asset management. In addition, we seek to capitalize on our portfolio’s embedded value and balance sheet strength to actively recycle past investments into new growth and value creation opportunities in order to deliver strong shareholder returns and superior per-share NAV growth. We are stewards of our shareholders’ capital. In fulfilling that mission, we apply a relentless focus on growing our per-share earnings and NAV in order to provide superior risk-adjusted returns on their investment. We create atmospheres where travelers want to be, rather than have to be. Hospitality, inclusivity, and integrity are essential elements in achieving our mission.

Sunstone Hotel Investors is committed to conducting our business according to the highest moral and ethical standards. As owners of Long-Term Relevant Real Estate®, we take a holistic view of investing in our assets, which means balancing the best interests of our stockholders, the environment, our employees, the hotel associates, guests and the communities in which we own hotels. As part of our company strategy, we aim to create lasting value through ownership of hotels. This strategy, combined with focused asset management and a flexible balance sheet, enables us to make meaningful investments to improve the environmental performance of our assets, as well as enhance the quality of the work environment for the hotel employees and support the communities in which we own hotels. Throughout our portfolio, our Engineering and Asset Management teams continuously monitor energy, waste and water consumption and costs, as well as work with our operators to identify areas for improvement. We focus our ESG-oriented investments by identifying four primary factors: (i) properties with high energy consumption and/or high utility cost; (ii) dated equipment that is inefficient or nearing end-of-useful-life; (iii) initiatives that support our long-term sustainability goals or mitigate identified risks, and (iv) available incentives associated with all potential investments. We strive to create a healthy and supportive workplace for Sunstone Hotel Investors employees through establishing a safe, inclusive, and accommodating work environment, as well as offering competitive wages & benefits, and career development opportunities. We also work with our hotel managers to offer the same support for hotel associates. Furthermore, we seek to support the communities where we work and own hotels through community outreach programs and philanthropic efforts.Our corporate governance follows industry best practice to ensure a high level of transparency, accountability and effective management. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines outline the operational procedures of our Board of Directors and its committees, and sets forth a common set of expectations. Three primary committees: the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee, and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, are overseen by the Board to ensure compliance with policies and procedures, including Board composition and executive and management compensation.
