Building an a +ESG Program
Avanath is committed to building and maintaining a portfolio that serves our communities, investors, residents, and the environment.
As a leader in the affordable housing industry, we believe prioritizing social equality, responsible investing, and the environment supports greater prosperity. Integrating environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) policies into our decision-making expands opportunity for our residents across the United States. +Amplify represents a comprehensive ESG framework that guides Avanath’s operations.
As we seek to provide and foster opportunity for our residents, we must ensure that our employees are supported and educated to provide the best service and care. We aim to foster an empowering, respectful, and collaborative workplace so we can be agents of change in the communities where we live and work.
Amplifying our ESG impact in these critical areas
Responsible Property Investment
As a fiduciary and manager of institutional capital, we recognize that applying ESG principles will deliver long term value for our investors, the environment and the communities in which we serve.
Avanath believes that environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) issues can positively affect the performance of our investments. We are a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment, a network of international investors working together to implement the principles of ESG into practice. We are also recognized by the California Organized Investment Network (COIN), which was established at the request of the insurance industry as an alternative to state legislation that would have required insurance companies to invest in underserved communities. This program facilitates insurance industry investments that provide solid returns to investors and yield environmental and social benefits to underserved communities. COIN is a collaborative effort between the California Department of Insurance, the insurance industry, affordable housing, economic development organizations, and community advocates.
