Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE:KRC) announced its
participation in and sponsorship of the upcoming Global Climate Action
Summit (the "Summit"), to be held in San Francisco September 12-15. The
Summit will bring together the world's climate leaders with the goal of
launching deep environmental commitments and accelerating action from
cities, states, businesses and investors.

KRC is the sole American real estate company that has been selected to
participate in the Summit. KRC CEO John Kilroy will be providing opening
remarks at the ‘Building Up to Net Zero Carbon Emissions' session with

climate action commitments such as steep emissions reductions by 2030.

"KRC's longstanding and progressive environmental programs have deeply
benefited our tenants, investors, employees and other stakeholders as
well as the earth," said Mr. Kilroy. "Participating in this Summit
demonstrates that we believe that real estate has a critical role to
play in global climate action efforts, and we are up to the challenge."
