A SUSTAINABLE APPROACH TO INVESTING
Our sustainable investment approach aims to create long-term value and enhance social and ecological harmony through all our investments and assets. We take a comprehensive view of sustainability where we ensure that all aspects of the investment we aim to do creates long term value and is aligned with our investors' objectives. In a snap show, our criteria assesses some of the following aspects:
- Financial sustainability where we ensure that the financial structures of the deal are relevant and appropriate;
- Operational sustainability to ensure assets have the right technologies and efficiencies to optimize performance;
- Funding sustainability where we assess whether future cash flows are durable and sustainable in the long run;
- Technological sustainability where we consider the viability and potential obsolescence of the base technology;
- Social sustainability where we ensure that the benefits from the investment are cascaded to all levels of society;
- Environmental sustainability where we ensure that a potential investment has positive impacts to the environment.
According to the United Nations, buildings are responsible for about 40% of global energy use and some 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Agriculture and energy production account for an additional 50% of global green house gas emissions. In cities and urban centers, it is estimated that up to 80% of greenhouse gas emissions are attributable to the energy used by buildings. There is growing evidence that sustainable investment in real estate and renewable technologies and infrastructure generates superior investment returns. They also reduce operating costs as a result of energy savings and other reductions in resource consumption.
At RE Equity Partners, we recognize that we are responsible for the impact our investments have on the environment and local communities. That is why we are strongly committed to sustainable investing, including careful consideration of environmental and socio-economic risks as well as the opportunities associated with owning and managing assets. This sustainable approach generates strong returns that are closely aligned with our investors’ investment objectives. We have noted from recent trends that investors are increasingly sensitive to social and environmental impacts — not just financial returns. And a growing number of today’s investors are looking for investment managers that take a much more comprehensive view of sustainability in their investment selection and aim to create sustainable value and impact.
