Reporting a Concern

We take great pride in CBRE’s reputation for upholding the highest ethical and professional standards. It’s a significant reason for our company’s success—which depends on us living up to the values outlined in our Standards of Business Conduct

CBRE welcomes reports of potential misconduct from employees and external stakeholders and will investigate and take appropriate action subject to applicable laws. CBRE has a zero-tolerance policy on retaliation that covers any concerns raised in good faith, even if those concerns turn out to be mistaken or unfounded. 

CBRE respects and complies with the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive and all applicable local laws ("Whistleblowing Legislation"). To learn about your protection against retaliation and the scope of breaches under the Whistleblowing Legislation, click HERE

Reporting channels

There are two reporting channels available to raise concerns. We will listen and respond appropriately, no matter which channel you choose.

  1. File a report online or by phone (anonymously if permitted by local law) using the CBRE Ethics HelpLine, operated by an independent company and available 24/7 in every country where we do business. Concerns of serious misconduct raised through the CBRE Ethics HelpLine are received and handled by qualified and experienced investigators within CBRE’s Trust Function.
  2. File a report online or request a call-back or in-person meeting under the CBRE EU Whistleblowing Line, operated by an external service provider for specific EU countries [add hyperlink to the list of EU countries with >249 employees)]. All reports are handled and investigated locally.

External Channels

CBRE encourages reporting all matters internally through the CBRE Ethics HelpLine or the CBRE EU Whistleblowing Line. All reports are handled with the utmost seriousness and promptness. However, should you wish to, you can report concerns to the relevant authorities within your jurisdiction under applicable laws. The current information is available ONLINE
