Our real-estate development also approaches buildings and urban infrastructure, such as South Lake Union in Seattle, with sustainable practices and a philosophy that embraces eco-centric, low-sprawl, reduced-commute community design. 

Vulcan is also at the cutting edge of impact investing, a new approach that supports companies, organizations, and funds with the intention to generate a measurable, beneficial social or environmental impact alongside a financial return. It is a form of socially responsible investing that serves as a guide for various investment strategies.
