Our Investment Solutions

Sustainable Real Estate

We invest in sustainable real estate around the world, in particular in Germany’s major metropolitan areas. These buildings are distinguished by their high energy efficiency and provide publicly subsidized housing and daycare centers. In addition, we promote e-mobility concepts and ensure good local public transport connections.

  • Investment markets: Europe and the US
  • Investment strategy: Develop and hold, with a focus on sustainable housing.

Renewable Energy

We invest principally in renewable energy sources such as wind farms, hydropower plants and photovoltaic systems. Energy storage systems and energy-efficient projects are another key component of our investment strategy.

  • Investment markets: Worldwide
  • Investment strategy: The focus is on investments that are at a development stage, and we then aim to minimize risk through diversification. Integrating market-relevant developments at an early stage and making efficient use of capital help to maximize success. The investments also offer an inflation hedge to protect against inflation risks.

Our Commitment

From its inception, Pangaea Life has been committed to a sustainable vision. By consistently integrating ESG criteria into all our decision-making processes, we aspire to create investments that are economically shrewd, environmentally responsible and socially balanced. Environmental considerations and social responsibility in particular take center stage here.

How We Understand Sustainability

Sustainability is often associated with the color green. However, at Pangaea Life we see things differently. We stand for “Blue Sustainability” as represented by our investments. In contrast to the traditional green sustainability, we do not see the value of exclusions and prohibitions. For us, humans and nature are not opposites – they are one harmonious whole.

Our vision of blue sustainability is clear: we aim to encourage people and heighten their awareness that they possess crucial tools to bring about positive change in the world. We take the view that genuine sustainability puts people’s standard of living, freedom and creativity front and center – and this is precisely what makes it so effective. We focus on innovation, personal initiative and progress to collectively meet the current global challenges.

Through our products, we enable people to actively take responsibility and thus to shape a hopeful future for themselves, their loved ones and our planet.
