Responsible Property Investment Council (RPIC)


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.    By increasing our knowledge base and strengthening our execution we are able to better serve our clients, staff, residents and occupiers, investors and communities.  Our goal is to share our knowledge with our ULI colleagues.

The Council is a diverse and dynamic group of real estate professionals who benefit from candidly sharing and exploring new ideas and lessons learned.   Membership consists of leading investors and practitioners who understand the importance of “People, Planet, Profit” as a real estate investment strategy.   We learn from each other and build on successful practices in other industries.  We recognize that strategies that support environmental and social values effectively manage risk, improve competitiveness, enhance operational efficiency and maximize returns.
