Sustainable Investing Philosophy
carbon neutral headquarters. Our rooftop installation of solar panels produces a surplus of energy annually, directing what power isn’t utilized on campus back to the local power grid.
The integration of architecture and advanced environmental technologies is exemplified in the Thornburg campus. Tiered down a sloping hillside facing the Sangre de Cristo mountains, the structures successfully maximize the challenging site space, while maintaining a striking aesthetic and preserving the natural look of the site.
The campus received a LEED Gold certification from the United States Green Building Council. Many of the LEED features surpass industry standards for air quality, daylight control, and water and energy conservation.
