With a diverse portfolio of developments located in cities across Canada, KingSett Capital is one of the country’s top private equity firms. Since its founding in 2002, KingSett has operated with the values of trust, accountability and transparency on every project of which they have been a part. Most importantly, the firm has made sustainability their highest priority when investing in new developments-with the result being a five-star “Green Star” rating from GRESB.
With formal guidelines regarding environmental friendliness in place, KingSett has implemented measurable sustainability goals for all of their developments. Investors can expect the firm to manage and assess environmental issues for each new project, and to achieve results that maximize returns-on-investment. The centerpiece of this initiative is the yearly Sustainability Report, which highlights the “green” initiatives KingSett has taken during the past year and is done with accountability in mind. In 2018, this report highlighted the company’s successful efforts to install energy-efficient lighting in its properties, as well as the moving of their corporate office to a LEED Gold-certified building. KingSett Capital recognizes that environmental friendliness will only continue to grow in importance to both investors and buyers, and their methodical approach to ensuring sustainability ensures that they will be a development force for years to come.
