CP Capital’s ESG approach is rooted in the belief that incorporating ESG principles into our business and investment decisions can result in long-term value for our clients and our society.
While our primary focus is upholding our fiduciary responsibility in order to achieve sustainable, positive investment returns for clients over the long term, real estate offers unique opportunities to integrate environmental and social goals. We work together with partners to assess which elements can be incorporated at our properties.
By being a PRI signatory, we commit to incorporate environmental, social and governance principles into our operations, and culture of our company. CP Capital’s dedicated ESG Team is comprised of members across functions to ensure all initiatives meet the standard of our corporate ethos.

CP capital believes the inclusion of environmental initiatives within the investment process can lead to higher returns and positive contributions to society and the environment. CP Capital has direct engagement with our developer partners and investments. We view collaborating with our GPs to encourage ESG best practices as our key responsibility.
Fostering a sense of community and responsibility is at the heart of our company. CP Capital’s social initiative, now CP CAPITAL IMPACT, was launched in 2017 to provide opportunities to “give back” through volunteering and charitable donations. We are committed to doing our part to support and create equitable opportunities for all, and actively seek out nonprofits focused on improving their communities.
CP Capital is governed by a Board committed to governance practices aimed at setting forth the firm’s guiding principle of being a responsible fiduciary. Our business practices and compliance policies serve to uphold the fundamental ideals of the firm – openness, integrity, respect -- making us a trusted partner. Finally, our employees are the heart of the company. We seek to attract a diverse workforce and provide opportunities that promote growth through both professional and social teambuilding events.
