Also known as ‘socially responsible investment’ (SRI) has grown exponentially over the last decade. The field was grown from a fringe interest for small conscientious investors, to a market where the largest financial institutions provide a sustainable option for their clients.
An SRI fund should not just aim to exclude companies that have unsustainable activity and policy. An SRI fund should seek out companies and firms who have chosen to be the leading edge in social and environmental performance.
At Rincoin we will ensure to seek out investments that fundamentally better the progression of mankind whilst securing profitable outcomes on those investments made.
The average return on investment (ROI) within the sustainable sector is between 8-15% on average. With the knowledge and experience of Rincoins board, we are confident in sourcing and validating investment opportunities that provide coin holders with a respectable return on the investment they make with us.
Some of the sectors and projects you can expect Rincoin to target are:
- Solar – This form of energy relies on the nuclear fusion power from the core of the sun, solar energy is collected and converted in several ways.
- Wind – The movement of the atmosphere is driven by the differences in temperature on the planet’s surface when exposed to sunlight.
- Hydro Electric – Uses the gravitation potential of elevated water that was lifted from the oceans by sunlight.
- Biomass – Energy gained from plant life.
- Geothermal Power – Energy left over from the original accretion of the plant and augmented by heat from radioactive decay.
- Tidal Power – Relies on the gravity of the moon to move the tides up & down.
By building homes that are designed to reduce the impact on the environment during and after construction we can help to meet our targets to tackle the effects of climate change. By efficiently using water, waste and land, it also provides a great opportunity to reduce pollution, waste and greenhouse gasses.
Sustainable Development meets the need of the present without compromising the needs of the future.
An energy-efficient home retains the best quality environment for the occupants whilst minimising the use of energy and waste.
Zero carbon building is a balance of renewable energy production compared to carbon emissions.
Digital Infrastructure & IOT
People in developed countries take broadband or WIFI for granted but we have a responsibility to ensure everyone has access to it where suitable in the world.
The Internet of Things (IOT) will change the face of all industries going forward. Almost everything will be connected in some way or another in the not too distant future.
With the burden of big data, we will need to ensure an infrastructure capable of dealing with the demand for storage.
We can build smart cities now to help maintain low energy use and a low waste policy all by ensuring the cities infrastructure is connected and working in harmony.
The Internet of Things (IOT) is expected to be worth trillions by 2020.
IOT solutions can increase productivity, reduce costs and improve the standard of living.
Vertical Farming is one of the latest methods of reducing waste, utilising space and reducing the negative impact on the environment as a whole. By adopting this practice on a larger scale, we can provide a more sustainable alternative to the current method of feeding our cities.
The development of LED lighting has made it possible for vertical farms to function with zero sunlight. With the right energy setup vertical farms could thrive.
We could also make better use of the current farmland by making the switch & turning the land back into its forest like state.
This will encourage wildlife to flourish and have immediate benefits to the eco-system.
By putting sustainability at the forefront of commercial engineering, we can make huge savings on maintenance, energy consumption and waste.
We can ensure that all projects have not only a benefit to the community it serves, but a real-world benefit to the environment long term.
Basically, sustainable engineering is the science of applying engineering and design principles in a way that encourages social and economic development, yet still minimises the impact on the environment.
Engineering focus areas include:
– Sanitation and waste management
– Water supply
– Restoring natural environments like forests, lakes, streams etc
– Energy development
