ABOUT US


Target Rock Advisors, LLC was created in January 2011, inspired by the collective experience of its founding members and the glaring problem/solution gap opened by market trends and analytic impediments, best characterized as:

  • the growing importance of sustainable business practices and socially responsible investing within the energy and utility industries, and
  • a paucity of deep, sector-specific benchmarks, financial market indexes, and other metrics necessary to facilitate sustainable planning and development, as well as inform socially responsible investment decisions.




Target Rock bridges this gap for clients with the design, development, and ongoing refinement of expert and model-based products and services, such as off-the-shelf and customized sustainability scoring and performance benchmarking systems, thematic stock market indexes, sector-specific products, and other proprietary analyses that:


  • provide innovative perspectives on how well energy utility companies are performing and where sustainability practice improvements might be achieved, and
  • guide investors in making more informed decisions by bringing to light the truly great sustainability leaders and their relative strengths and weaknesses.

Sustainability is a rapidly evolving concept, particularly in the U.S. utility sector. Much of what Target Rock aspires to rests on largely unexplored ground. Sustainability definitions and methodologies vary significantly depending on application, practitioner, sponsor’s agenda, and a variety of other factors.

Target Rock is a GRI Organizational Sponsor and our principals are members of USSIF (US Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment). We pride ourselves as a flexible, continuously learning organization, open to adaption as the science and art of sustainability advances. We expect our products and services to also evolve as we digest our field experience and the contributions made by industry stakeholders.
Target Rock bridges the gap between the growing importance of sustainable business practices in the energy and utility industry and the relative lack of informed, industry-specific benchmarking and analytics.
