Environmental Fiduciary Project
The prevailing "wisdom" that the economy and the environment represent opposing interests has guided the thinking of many governmental and business leaders for generations, with disastrous, worldwide effects on the environment, workers, and communities. But there is a growing recognition that global warming, toxic pollution, and ecosystem destruction are also macro-economic financial threats.
The Environmental Fiduciary Project leverages huge pools of capital towards environmental sustainability and the precautionary principle. The Project encourages trustees responsible for pension funds, foundation endowments and other large investment portfolios to respond to the increasing evidence that environmental performance is an economic value driver.
