Nuveen Real Estate's mission statement is: "Investing in Tomorrow's World, for the enduring benefit of our clients and society." Central to our fiduciary duty is the need to identify and manage the issues that are expected to impact on the performance of our clients' investments and ESG issues are a critical part of this. Nuveen Real Estate's Tomorrow's World strategy enables it to manage ESG risks and opportunities throughout the investment process.
Nuveen Real Estate's 'Tomorrow's World' philosophy is anchored around four pillars:

2. Investing in Tomorrow's World… by actively considering the impact of ESG megatrends such as Climate Change on the assets of today and tomorrow, with investment strategies focused on opportunities to safeguard and enhance value for our clients.
3. Helping to create Tomorrow's World… which supports thriving communities with net-zero buildings, businesses and ecosystems by creating outstanding places for people in the communities of tomorrow, where community-wide prosperity is unlocked and environmental systems are restored.
4. Ready to be part of Tomorrow's World… in which we are an active and positive corporate citizen, engaged and influential in the business of tomorrow.
