I wanted to start a new series on the ESG front. As a refresher ESG stands for: Environmental, Sustainable and Governance. I have often mentioned initiatives/projects that I have found interesting or may be investable, but I want to make this a regular occurrence.

Although we are not lacking for rain here in the northeast, California often deals with drought conditions.

Nuveen has been one of the leaders in the ESG space from an investing perspective.

They recently launched a new initiative. In cooperation with the Napa Valley (CA) Sanitation Company they sought to remedy one of the major issues facing vinyards: water resources!

Crops need sufficient water to flourish. In fact, a typical vineyard requires 165,000 gallons of water per acre for irrigation.

Nuveen’s famrland investment strategy worked with Napa Sanitation to route treated water to vineyards and other locations.

The result?

Ground water usage was reduced by 75%

Irrigation costs were lowered by 65%
