Where We Invest

Because Ulupono is focused on creating impact for Hawaii, we look carefully at companies and organizations that will help us achieve our goals in our sectors of interest. We find there is often crossover within sectors, but ultimately, we invest in organizations that are working to produce more locally grown food, more renewable energy and/or reduce waste.

Ulupono seeks to invest in and help grow local organizations involved in clean/renewable energy, diversified agriculture, and use waste as a resource that have high potential for creating large-scale social impact in an innovative and sustainable manner, and where our involvement will be catalytic in achieving that outcome.
