Nuveen was awarded Climate Investment Initiative of the Year from Insurance Asset Risk on October 11th, 2023, based on a submission that centered around the creation of a C-PACE offering as a solution for insurance companies. The judges review submitted entry material and then score the entries in a secret ballot both by giving a mark out of 100 and a rank - 1st, 2nd, 3rd, no placement. Votes are counted and verified by the Insurance Asset Risk editorial team. All judges are senior industry experts from across the Americas, each chosen for their knowledge, objectivity and credibility. The judges' decision is final and neither Insurance Asset Risk nor the judging panel enter into any correspondence regarding individual entries and/or award winners.
