At GIP, making a positive contribution to the communities in which we operate is fundamental to our business and companies with which we work.
ESG factors are at the core of our approach to investment decision making and asset management. GIP’s ESG-dedicated team of professionals work hand in hand with the investment team as well as each company.
GIP is committed to meaningfully helping communities, through charitable giving, team involvement, and support, and is currently focuses on several impactful initiatives supporting our communities.
One particular focus is through helping underprivileged high school students discover the field of engineering, through Engineering Tomorrow, a non-profit organization. Engineering Tomorrow introduces students to real world engineering projects taught by engineers and inventors that illustrate how the math and science they studied is applied to solve big problems such as renewable energy, water reuse, and health and disease control.
GIP also supports Student Sponsor Partners (SSP), a non-profit devoted to harnessing the power of quality education and mentorship to help low-income and academically average New York City youth. Currently, 21 GIP employees are sponsoring and/or mentoring 41 SSP students. GIP and its employees have collectively donated more than $1 million to provide young adults with the gift of education. GIP-sponsored students have gone on to attend colleges including Cornell, NYU, St. John’s, and Iona.
