Curb Climate ChangeOverview
The CREO Syndicate (“CREO”) is a 501c3 public charity founded by wealth owners and family offices with a mission to address some of the most pressing environmental challenges of our time affecting communities across the globe – climate change and resource scarcity – by catalyzing private capital into innovative solutions to protect and preserve the environment and accelerate the transition to a more sustainable economy for the benefit of the public.
CREO works closely with a broad set of global stakeholders, including Members (wealth owners and family offices), Friends (aligned investors such as pension funds and university endowments), and Partners (government, not-for-profit organizations and academia) who collaboratively develop and invest in solutions across sectors, asset classes and geographies.
CREO activities include 1) community building; 2) research; 3) peer and expert-led education; 4) deal origination and 5) active leadership to advance its mission.
Every day, CREO and Cambridge Associates encounter wealth owners, families, and family office professionals who are starting down the path of sustainability investing.
This paper details the typical path these investors take, the questions many of them face, and the way that many of them successfully develop a winning strategy that generates both returns and impact. Based on observations over the years, we have developed a framework to help investors understand where they are in the process. We describe this framework as the Sustainable Investor Path (SIP) Wheel; illustrate the strategies of several wealth owners, families, and family offices; and conclude with some lessons and best practices that investors can use to facilitate their sustainable investing journey.
CREO participation now extends to over 1,000 like-minded private and institutional investors and asset-owner representatives with over $800 billion of investable capital. CREO also selectively engages with other key capital markets participants and stakeholders in highly curated formats. CREO invites carefully vetted fund managers, corporate executives, entrepreneurs, policy makers, philanthropists and other leaders in our markets into certain gatherings to accelerate the deployment of capital into CREO markets in the most effective and appropriate manner. All non-family office participants attend on a voluntary, unpaid basis as subject matter specialists. All participation is by invitation only.
