Pioneering Sustainable Farming Practices

WITH JOSE MINAYA, MANAGING DIRECTOR, NATURAL RESOURCES & AND INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS

In the TIAA-CREF agriculture portfolio, social responsibility goes hand-in-hand with global investing. The organization’s analysts recognize the value of international investing in socially-responsible and environmentally-friendly ways. This idea pervades many of the organization’s investment decisions and impacts various TIAA-CREF portfolios.

An example of these initiatives is TIAA-CREF’s farmland investments, which span across many of the major grain producing regions of the world. Australia farmland is one of the cornerstones of the TIAA-CREF agriculture portfolio. The country allows for large-scale land purchases, and the land and climate are agreeable for a diverse selection of crops, including cotton, grain, barley, and wheat.
