Sustainable Buildings & Cities

Invest in companies building more sustainably

By investing in this impact area you are supporting companies building with an eye to minimize negative environmental impacts, mitigate climate change and preserve resources. Think better insulation, green roofs and LEED certified buildings.

Why It Matters

  • By 2050 another 2.5 billion people will live in cities and buildings which will produce more than 40% of U.S. CO2 emissions. LEED-certified buildings generate 34% less CO2.
  • More than 4 billion people live in urban areas and by 2050, close to 7 billion people are projected to live in urban areas.

We evaluate companies based on how they are:

✔   Minimizing negative environmental impacts throughout a building’s life-cycle

✔   Making buildings more green, insulated and sustainable
