Freddie Mac’s mission is to provide liquidity, stability and affordability to the housing market. We interpret that mission expansively to meet the country’s broader housing needs by providing affordable, safe, sustainable and equitable access to housing. This includes integrating environmental, social and governance strategies into our business and operations, which we accomplish through four pillars: purpose, planet, people and practices.

Materiality Assessment

In 2020, Freddie Mac established a Sustainability Office that is responsible for developing the corporate sustainability strategy, and managing and driving implementation across the company. To design this strategy, Freddie Mac engaged with internal leaders and external partners to conduct a materiality assessment and researched relevant industry standards to identify sustainability issues most important to our stakeholders, long-term business and mission. This work is the foundation of our pillars. In keeping with industry best practice, we plan to voluntarily refresh our materiality assessment periodically and will update those results here.
