Sustainable Investment Initiative
In June 2010, Investure LLC created the Sustainability Series of the Investure Global Equity Fund. Dickinson committed exactly 1% of its pooled endowment to this initiative, which provides an investment vehicle that will focus on investments that generate long-term social, environmental and economic value. Sectors targeted for investment include:
- Investment in the supply chain of renewable energy, including wind, solar, hydro and geothermal
- Energy storage investments
- LEED certified real estate, including ratings of bronze, silver, gold and platinum
- Investments in water conservation and reduction of CO2 emissions
In May 2014, the Committee on Investments announced an increased commitment to the Sustainability Series for a total commitment of $8 million.
