In a changing world, our sustainability efforts help ensure we can continue to Make Home Possible equitably and responsibly for families across the nation.

Affordability issues, changing economic conditions and natural disasters have created uncertainty for housing. Our mission to provide stability, liquidity and affordability to the housing finance system requires mitigation of that uncertainty.

To that end, Freddie Mac has implemented an enterprise-wide sustainability strategy that supports the continued success and longevity of our business, the housing industry and the planet — and we have received recognition for our work.
