JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Regency Centers Corporation (“Regency” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: REG) announced the release of its 2021 Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) report. The report, which supplements and updates the TCFD section in our most current Corporate Responsibility Report, reflects Regency’s continued commitment to corporate responsibility best practices and transparency.

In line with the TCFD’s recently updated disclosure recommendations, the report summarizes climate-related risks and opportunities and their potential impacts on the Company’s strategy and business. Regency actively plans and implements actions to assess and mitigate the potential effects of climate change on our business, and intends to continue to build upon and revise the results of its climate change risk analysis, including the introduction of site-specific analysis.

“Our focus on climate risk mitigation is a key part of our continued commitment to best-in-class corporate responsibility practices,” said Lisa Palmer, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We will continue to do our part to reduce our environmental footprint, while analyzing future risks to, and opportunities in, our portfolio to help guide our capital allocation strategy and overall strategic planning.”
