The SRI Conference is only a week away. For those of you who may not know about the conference, it’s one of the leading sustainable, responsible, impact investing conferences in the country where we join other investment professionals and investors interested in promoting a more sustainable and prosperous economy and future.
The impact investing field has grown considerably over the past several years, with this past year being no exception. We continue to see both large institutions and individuals looking to alter investments to consider environmental, social and governance criteria and align investments with values.
We are incredibly excited to share more about our work and how our three-pronged approach of sustainable investment, leading shareholder advocacy, and support of public policy through our unique ownership is helping our clients make a tangible impact through the power of their investments. It goes without saying we are also looking forward to learning from friends and colleagues about how we can deliver the best products and services to our investors.
If you are coming to the conference, please stop by our table to learn more about what we’ve accomplished this past year, including the launch of our new Green Century MSCI International Index Fund. The Fund is the first responsible, diversified and fossil fuel free international index fund available to U.S. investors. You may also be interested in learning more about our Forest Protection Campaign and how it has improved the palm oil supply chain, or our shareholder advocacy efforts regarding sustainable agriculture. Whatever your interest, passion, or specialty area may be, we look forward to the opportunity to speak with you about our shared mission in promoting environmentally and socially sustainable investment.
If you want to follow along while we are at the conference, you can do so on Twitter (@Green_Century), where we’ll be sharing updates.
Again, we look forward to seeing some of you in Denver and sharing ideas about how we can continue to help our clients accomplish their goals.
