The Responsible Property Investment Council (RPIC) aims to accelerate adoption and firmly embed “triple bottom line” principles as a core part of any real estate investment strategy and decision making process. What distinguishes the council is a proactive intent to deploy capital that generates risk adjusted market rate returns while creating social and/or environmental value. The Council focuses on a people-centered approach to real estate investment. Council conversations and presentations delve into the links between resource use, cutting edge technology and building practices, protection of the natural environment and improvement in the lives of people, all of which serve to create robust economic returns.
