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.
