30th Anniversary: the next 30 years

Animation by ARTEMEGOROV, Storyblocks

Welcome to our very special 30th Anniversary issue, the first of two issues in which we’ll look at “The Next 30 Years.”

As the founder of the GreenMoney Journal, when I think of words that describe our 30-year history, I think of creativity, determination, engagement, resilience, friendship, and especially, gratitude. So, we begin this issue with a heart-felt “Thank You” to our many writers, advertisers and to you, our readers. You have sustained me and our team from the print days of the first 20 years to our online presence over the last ten. We have sought to be a solutions-focused publication since day one. While acknowledging the current challenges, we always focus on the road ahead, towards a more sustainable economy.

July 2022 Feature Anniversary Writers-GreenMoney 30th Anniv

This July/August issue is looking ahead at the next 30 years because many scholars say these coming three decades constitute the most critical time frame ever for the survival of humanity, as they take us through to 2050. Our writers paint an accurate picture of our world currently (and what got us here) while illuminating the roadmap to a more sustainable economy and restorative future for all. These writers include Amy Domini of Domini Impact Investments; Joe Keefe of Impax Asset Mgmt/Pax World funds; Katherine Collins of Putnam Investments and Honeybee Capital; and Ebony Perkins of UHC and formerly with Self-Help Credit Union. Also, you will find a new article from JLL featuring their latest research study and Global Sustainability Report. Finally, don’t miss our newest video and podcast. 

In closing I would like to add my congratulations to our long-time friends over at the Biomimicry Institute as they turn 25 this year. We are so inspired by the nature-based approach that Janine Benyus and her team have pioneered, bridging biology and design to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.

The first phase of the responsible investment movement has matured.

The Next 30 Years: Investing in the Transition to a More Sustainable Economy

Joe Keefe
Impax Asset Management
The transition to a more sustainable economy will require more intentionality than we see today, in the sense that businesses, capital markets, civil society and governments will need to reach consensus on goals and how to reach them. We should not underestimate the immensity of this challenge, transitioning from a depletive economic model to a more circular, restorative economic model.

What Would Nature Do? What Would Nature Have Me Do? The Next Thirty Years

Katherine Collins
Putnam Investments
I see a great reconnection in business and investing taking root – a joining-up of finance and the wisdom of our natural world. I don’t mean a focus on investing in nature, though that is vital. I mean a focus on investing as nature, a shift in how our decisions are considered and made and monitored. It reflects a deeper level of reunion, a reconnection of investing with the world it is meant to serve.

It’s Official: The Climate Crisis is a Health Emergency

Ebony Perkins
Impact Finance Center
It’s natural to want to celebrate our progress in the fight against climate change. Since GreenMoney’s founding in 1992, we’ve had a few wins —we’ve bent the emissions curve, leaders have committed to cutting emissions further, EV sales have skyrocketed, and clean energy costs have declined. Investors are investing in communities now experiencing the direct effects of climate change. But there is still much work to do.

Episode 1: Circular Plastics  Exploring innovative solutions to product design, packaging, business models, supply chains and advanced recycling technologies. So much plastic is designed to be single-use. A study by Pew Charitable Trusts highlights that plastic-related greenhouse-gas emissions are projected to account for around 19% of the global carbon budget by 2040. How can we develop innovative upstream solutions, and design products and packaging that promote circular models of production, consumption and waste management? To what extent have policymakers created an environment conducive to progress?
