Red Rocks Impact is an investment holding that supports solutions to global problems as defined in the UN Sustainable Development Goals by deploying capital and other resources through responsible investment decisions. Each investment is made with the strong intention to balance appropriate financial return with well-defined and clearly measured impact. We actively invest in purpose-driven organizations worldwide that have a focus on providing clean energy, addressing climate change or strengthening social stability. Furthermore, we aim to advance the field of impact investing by sharing our journey and engaging in open discussion about right livelihood as investors.
Although we believe all of the Sustainable Development Goals are important, our focus is investing in solutions that preserve our biosphere and help to create a more sustainable economy.
We believe businesses that partner with communities and nature create more value than businesses that are purely profit driven.
We partner with purpose-driven investors and businesses that create positive impact and respect planetary boundaries.
When deploying capital we seek the right balance between direct investment and working with fund managers on specific asset classes.
Greenhouse gas emissions produced by fossil fuels trap heat, melt polar ice, and release buried methane deposits. Unsustainable forestry, agricultural, and mining practices deplete natural resources that offset carbonization. Species are being extinguished at an unprecedented rate, endangering ecosystems and food production.
We have limited time to act and the investment community can play a key role evolving more sustainable business models. Our investment priorities include the following solution areas with a focus on mitigating climate change and preserving our biosphere for future generations.
Focus on 100% clean energy, alternative bio-based materials, reforestation and efficient water infrastructure.
Focus on production and distribution of food using techniques that minimize carbon footprint and waste.
Focus on solutions that optimize energy and materials usage and enable efficient recycling or ‘2nd life’.
Focus on transportation, water and waste treatment, energy efficient buildings and green urban areas.
Focus on front-runners in sustainable innovations without compromising quality of life or health
Focus on protecting habitats and biodiversity, climate change, clean air and water, oceans and forests.
