Our Impact Opportunities Fund will be investing alongside institutional clients who are like-minded in our goals. We believe this represents a unique opportunity to create a new asset class while addressing one of society’s current greatest needs. We believe the world is at the beginning of a 30-year movement to net-zero. This transition will affect virtually every business in every country. China, currently one of the largest generators of electricity from coal, has recently committed to being net-zero across its entire economy before 2060. The new U.S. administration has committed to clean energy by 2035, and the EU, the U.K. and Canada are all accelerating their energy transitions. There is now no disputing that the world overall is moving from fossil fuels to lower carbon energy—renewables and potentially hydrogen.
We have also launched new strategies, and while none of these are expected to be significant contributors to our results in the short term, they should all be meaningful in the longer term. These include investing in the energy transition to net-zero, innovation in climate-aligned technology and real estate.
Experience has also taught us that the greatest opportunities are often found in sectors encountering stretches of financial or operational trouble. We utilize our global team of professionals and our business partners to identify and acquire high-quality assets and businesses at appropriate valuations and finance them on a long-term, low-risk basis.
Rest assured, when we acquire these assets, we will be laser focused on the duration of cash flows, and we will operate them with their contributions to the transition to net-zero in mind and with plans to ensure they continuously do better.
Developing properties that take environmental considerations into account is not only a passion, it provides returns on our investments. That’s why 100% of our new developments are being built according to LEED® Gold standards, to proactively address greenhouse gas emissions, energy efficiency, water use, indoor air quality, and other impacts.
TFCC strives to be a leader in sustainable finance products, which support adaptation to global climate change challenges.
