Goldman Sachs Banks On Cultural Capital Case Study

We serve clients in this area through our Public Sector and Infrastructure team within the Investment Banking Division, and also co-invest alongside clients through our investing teams.

Water Infrastructure

We will seek to facilitate private capital for much needed water infrastructure investments, including through well-designed Public-Private-Partnerships (P3s). When appropriately structured, these partnerships bring the benefits of operational efficiency and economies of scale, facilitating rate stability and high-quality, long-term public water access. Examples of communities with which we have previously worked include:

Efficient Water Management Technologies

We will look for opportunities to finance and co-invest in technologies that improve the efficiency of delivering and consuming water, as well as technologies that enhance wastewater management and enable water reuse and recycling.

Supporting Green Infrastructure Solutions

We will look for opportunities to devise investment structures that can harness green infrastructure solutions as a complement to traditional infrastructure in meeting our water needs. For example, restoring forests, installing green roofs and increasing green space can help alleviate stormwater runoff while improving the health and resiliency of cities.
