Guggenheim’s Green Task Force Seeks Sustainable Solutions

Guggenheim’s firmwide initiative to identify, evaluate, and pursue more sustainable corporate citizenship.


Guggenheim Partners’ Green Task Force is a firmwide initiative that seeks to identify, evaluate, and pursue opportunities to make Guggenheim a more sustainable corporate citizen. Guggenheim is committed to the long-term sustainability of the environment, and environmental sustainability is an integral component of its overall business and investment strategy and an increasingly important priority.

For example, Guggenheim’s Global Administration team implemented a new environmental impact initiative to decrease waste output by replacing some of the disposable items; cups, plates, bowls, paper towels, and utensils with environmentally-friendly versions in the New York, Santa Monica, and Houston offices and plans to expand this initiative to other offices. By making this change, the new supplies are reducing the offices’ CO2 output significantly and are also reducing annual spending. Information Technology is also focusing on more sustainable initiatives to avoid paper use wherever possible.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) continues to promote an environmentally-conscious strategy through its conservation-focused volunteer events and Earth Day Sustainability Challenge on Guggenheim Gives, the firm’s online giving and volunteering portal. These initiatives are in line with CSR's commitment to delivering social impact by engaging employees and stakeholders in impactful corporate citizenship programs.

The Green Task Force will continue to expand on sustainable initiatives across all Guggenheim offices, with a focus on providing employees with opportunities for direct engagement in going green.

 



Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Infrastructure investments may be subject to a variety of risks, not all of which can be foreseen or quantified, including operating, economic, environmental, commercial, currency, regulatory, political and financial risks. Investing in a specific sector such as infrastructure is more volatile than investing in a broadly diversified portfolio, as there is a greater risk due to the concentration of holdings in issuers of similar offerings. Sustainability requirements, including environmental, social, and governance (ESG) obligations may limit available investments, which could hinder performance when compared to strategies with no such requirements.
