Sustainable Investing at Rockefeller

"At Rockefeller, Sustainable Investing is a core part of our history. In the 1970s, the family launched its first mission-related fund. In early 1991, we launched a Global ESG Equity strategy. Drawing on over 40 years of intellectual capital, we offer our clients one of the most comprehensive sustainable investing platforms seeking to create value and catalyze change."
Gregory J. Fleming, President & Chief Executive Officer

The Rockefeller heritage in sustainable and impact investing dates back to the 1970s, when the family office began public and private investment programs that incorporated environmental and social values into the investment process. Rockefeller family members have long held the view that investment decisions have imperative moral, social and financial dimensions.
