With a commitment to building a more sustainable future, Taylor Morrison (NYSE: TMHC), a leading national land developer and homebuilder, today released its fourth annual Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report. The report details the Company's focus and achievements on its core ESG pillars: Building for the Future, People First and Transparency and Accountability.

"Following the progress we made in 2021, we look forward to further advancing our strategic operational initiatives, disciplined capital allocation, and values-based approach to sustainability in 2022 and beyond," said Taylor Morrison Chairman and CEO Sheryl Palmer. "Our ESG initiatives include an emphasis on our long-term strategy for managing our carbon footprint and continuing to increase diversity in leadership positions and across the organization. As we do so, our responsibility to all of our communities will remain our guiding light. As I look ahead, I am energized by the focus and determination of our team to reach new heights in our collective drive to create long-lasting, differentiated value for our homebuyers, business and shareholders."

The publication highlights the following ESG-related achievements Taylor Morrison made in 2021:
