Environmental Sustainability in our Communities

Decorative Picture of park

At Tri Pointe Homes, we focus on thoughtful community planning as a key driver to creating healthy communities. It all starts with our approach to land acquisition and land planning. Because land is a finite and precious resource, we are selective as to where we buy land and build our communities.

We acquire land that is close to employment, transportation corridors, educational centers and other resources that homebuyers look for in a new home community. Equally important is access to open spaces and exercise, so we plan for access to parks with walking trails, fitness/recreation amenities and natural habitat preservation to enhance overall wellness and health.

Planning for water conservation, especially in the west, is a top priority in terms of planning, home design and smart building practices. In fact, it is our standard practice to use natural bio-filtration systems, drought-tolerant plant materials and high-tech irrigation systems.


We say that we are not in the homebuilding business, we are in the life-changing business—a statement that is true for both the lives of our customers and our team members. We are dedicated to designing homes, neighborhoods and experiences that inspire and uplift, and are always looking for new ways to be a responsible neighbor and extend a helping hand at every opportunity.

Social Responsibility in our Communities

We believe that “making a difference” extends beyond the typical business boundaries, such as using our homebuilding expertise, resources, relationships and people to support programs like HomeAid, an organization whose mission is to end homelessness through building homes and community outreach. Reaching out to communities and establishing philanthropic partnerships epitomizes a deeper commitment to improving peoples’ lives.

Supporting our team members as they build lives of purpose and meaning is a cornerstone of our passionate culture, which is why we provide our team members with opportunities to donate their time to charitable organizations throughout our regional markets around the nation. In furtherance of that goal, we have established Tri Pointe C.A.R.E.S. (Charity, Advocacy, Resources, Enrichment and Stewardship) to encourage team members to use their positive energy, talent and expertise to give back in support of their local communities, reaping the rewards that come from charitable engagement, as well as benefit the communities that nurture and support us, furthering Tri Pointe’s longstanding commitment to social purpose and giving back.

Corporate Governance

Tri Pointe Homes is committed to a strong corporate governance structure and practices that reflect a commitment to accountability and transparency to our stockholders and other stakeholders. Our Board of Directors monitors and addresses important governance issues, including board independence and composition, executive compensation, corporate culture-related initiatives and ESG matters.

We seek to manage our affairs consistent with the highest principles of business ethics and corporate governance requirements. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics requires all of our employees, officers and directors to conduct business in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations and adhere to the highest standards of business ethics. Additionally, the charters of our board committees clearly establish their respective roles and responsibilities. For us, good corporate governance also means communicating consistently with our stockholders, customers and neighbors.
