Partnerships are in our DNA

Building partnerships of trust and shared vision cuts across everything we do. It is both a business and ideological prerogative. Together we can truly move the needle.
Partnerships are in our DNA

Our urban partnerships

Partnerships have been critical in our journey to date, and we will double down on them moving forward. We aim to mobilize the entire urban value chain to have the best chance of creating the systemic change needed.  We partner in different ways, always to pioneer solutions and increase our positive and long term impact – and along the way, we share findings, returns, successes, and learnings. Our partnership track record includes:
C40 Cities
Creating blueprints for Green and Thriving Neighborhoods

We have established a deep and pioneering partnership with C40 Cities, a global network of mayors from around 100 of the world´s largest cities, working to confront the climate crisis based on a strong mutual belief in the transformative power of cities. We’ve helped to develop a new Green and Thriving Neighborhoods program, delivering proof of concept for “15-minute city” policies and practices, including specific city pilots empowering cities around the globe to implement ambitious net-zero and people-centered neighborhoods. To achieve this, we’re working with a range of strategic partners including Arup, UNEP, UN Habitat and Sorbonne University

Leaders of the Urban Future
Leaders of the Urban Future - urban investors collaborating to accelerate decarbonization

Along with Systemiq, we co-founded Leaders of the Urban Future, a global group of influential and progressive urban investors collaborating to accelerate our sector’s decarbonization challenge. By pooling our learnings, we discuss how to take collective steps towards Net Zero across our portfolios, which represent over $0.5trn in assets under management (AUM).  By doing so, we aim to bring others along this journey and create a tipping point for our sector. To amplify our work, we are actively engaging with a range of key actors across the urban value chain, including Urban Land Institute, World Green Building Council, Science Based Targets Initiative, McKinsey, Rocky Mountains Institute, CREEM, Arup, C40 Cities, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, WEF and the Laudes Foundation
