Why Invest in Sustainable Real Estate?
The HIP Sustainable Real Estate portfolio invests in the top-rated real estate investment trusts (REITs), which generate dividends. HIP rates all tradeable REITs for overall sustainability, including what share of properties are LEED-certified, which can lead to lower usage and costs of energy, water, and waste. Properties pursuing sustainability and LEED criteria can realize higher rents and lower tenant turnover. Some tenants even experience higher productivity and attendance, along with fewer health problems for staff.
The HIP Sustainable Real Estate Portfolio invests in firms that own or manage properties that seek efficiency of water, energy, emissions, and zero waste.
Trees capture carbon, cleaning our environment, and providing places for birds and fauna to live. We invest in firms that manage forests as long term contributors to the health of Nature and biodiversity.
Buildings with more natural light, cleaner air, green walls, and LEED-certified features can result in healthier people who can be more productive, leading to higher rents.
