ZAIS is Carbon Neutral Second Year in a Row

ZAIS is a signatory to the United Nations-Supported Principles for Responsible Investment and supports the companion Sustainable Development Goals.  As in 2019, ZAIS used a third-party vendor software to calculate the carbon footprint of our operation. ZAIS continues to purchase carbon offsets via Carbonfund.org. Our colleagues have picked two projects to help fund this year: The Envira Amazonia Project and The Seneca Meadows Landfill Project.  The Carbonfund website offers the following information about these two projects: 

  • The Envira Amazonia Project is a payment-for-ecosystem-services forest conservation project in Brazil, otherwise known as a Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) project, protecting nearly 500,000 acres (200,000 hectares) of tropical rainforest in Brazil. The Project will mitigate the release of more than 12.5 million tons of carbon dioxide-equivalent emissions, while also preserving the habitat for what the Project describes as an extraordinary amount of biodiversity, and directly benefiting local communities. 
  • The Seneca Meadows Landfill Project, in Seneca Falls, New York, collects and destroys landfill gas, which is comprised of methane.  The Project also delivers some of the collected landfill gas for use in a gas-to-energy plant. In addition to mitigating climate change, the Project has also received numerous awards for its environmental stewardship and community engagement.   

We look forward to maintaining our carbon neutrality and seeing which projects our team selects in the coming years.

Forward-Looking Statements

These materials may contain statements that are not purely historical in nature but are “forward-looking statements”. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “potential,” “should” and “would” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements include, among other things, projections, forecasts, estimates or hypothetical calculations with respect to income, yield or return, future performance targets, sample or pro forma portfolio structures or portfolio composition, scenario analysis, specific investment strategies or proposed or pro forma levels of diversification or sector investment. These forward-looking statements are based upon certain assumptions, some of which are described herein. Prospective investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such statements. No representation is made by ZAIS as to the accuracy, validity or relevance of any such forward-looking statement and the recipient agrees it is solely responsible for gathering its own information and undertaking its own projections, forecasts, estimates and hypothetical calculations. Actual events are difficult to predict, are beyond ZAIS’s control, and may substantially differ from those assumed. All forward-looking statements included herein are based on information available on the date hereof or such date specified and ZAIS does not assume any duty to update any forward-looking statement contained herein. Some important factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those in any forward-looking statements include, among others, the actual composition of the investment portfolio, any defaults to the investments, the timing of any defaults and subsequent recoveries, changes in interest rates, changes in currency rates and any weakening of the specific obligations included in the portfolio. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that estimated returns or projections can be realized, that forward-looking statements will materialize or that actual returns or results will not be materially lower or higher than those presented. The value of any investment, and the income from it, may fall as well as rise. Accordingly, there can be no assurances that an investor will receive back all or any of the original capital invested. Further, the eligible investments may be leveraged and the portfolio of eligible investments may lack diversification thereby increasing the risk of loss.
