While McKnight has historically avoided conventional real-asset investments in real estate and fossil energy, our new sustainability lens pushes us to identify safe, long-lasting opportunities to build the world in which we want to live. This fund signals a broader shift among investors in traditional-energy infrastructure to cleaner opportunities in late-stage solar and wind development projects worldwide. It will also help local and national governments achieve their ambitious clean-energy goals.
