What's behind THIRDact?

We care deeply about energy and water consumption reduction, and we also care about the funding needs of small business. We launched thirdACT to provide small businesses access to capital for these kinds of improvements.  What we learned along the way is that small commercial properties have diverse needs. So we began looking at resiliency in buildings in a different way. 

We’ve talked with a lot of property owners, and we offer what you want: a non-debt solution with some flexibility. We can fund one or several upgrades. Mix seismic with energy efficiency. Sure. We can do that.  A leaky roof and a leaky faucet? We can do that too. You let us know what you need.  

We are women-founded and led.  thirdACT has always believed financial companies should be a force for good. We recognize this responsibility and are proud to be a Public Benefit Corporation. PBCs are a new type of corporation that harness the power of private enterprise to create public benefit.  The creation of the public benefit corporations is a powerful, no cost, market-based solution to the systemic problem of short-termism and an innovative approach to using market forces to solve our most challenging problems.  Our stated public benefit is that we drive resiliency in communities through better buildings. With every building we fund, we reinforce this mission.
