Oceans and Climate

From Patagonia in 2020, FISHPEOPLE tells the stories of a unique cast of characters who have dedicated their lives to the sea. Featuring Kimi Werner, Eddie Donnellan, Dave Rastovich, Matahi Drollet, Ray Collins and Lynne Cox. Directed by Keith Malloy

Welcome to our first-ever issue on “Oceans and Climate.” Over the years, many people have assumed that GreenMoney began with our first issue in 1992, but I actually think it started long before, when I was fortunate enough to spend much of my youth on a beach near LA. I went there several times a week after school, and in the evenings I would watch The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau learning about imperiled ocean ecosystems. That is when my environmental stewardship ethic began, which carries on to this very day.

Now, let’s explore this September issue, which features: Ted Janulis of Investable Oceans on Sustainable Ocean Investing; Leah Thibault of Coastal Enterprises Inc. on Climate Positive Financing in Sea Farming; Art Tabuenca of Blue Marble Investments on Investing in an Ocean Economy; and the team at the Climate Safe Lending Network on Ensuring Planetary Stability using Banks as Unlikely Allies. We’re also featuring two videos this month: FISHPEOPLE, from Patagonia which premiered in 2020 and OCEAN VISIONS: Catalyzing Solutions for Ocean Health and Climate.

In closing, join us (virtually) on Sept 21-24 for Financial Advice in the Age of Climate Change at The Great Repricing Conference. Click here for more details on the event and registration information. (use the Promo Code GMJ10 and save on your registration).

Sustainable Ocean Investing Gets Real by Ted Janulis of Investable Oceans--GreenMoney

Sustainable Ocean Investing Gets Real: Opportunities Across All Asset Classes

Ted Janulis
Investable Oceans
ESG and sustainable investing have taken center stage in asset management. Climate and now Oceans are leaders in this elevation with a proliferation of products, firms, and frameworks increasingly on investors’ radar screens.

Climate Positive Financing in Sea Farming by Leah B Thibault - CEI

Climate Positive Financing in Sea Farming

Leah B. Thibault
Coastal Enterprises Inc.
When it comes to climate change, oceans are the bellwether. For Maine, with a heritage and economy heavily tied to the sea, this is increasingly apparent in the changing behaviors of marine creatures, which is also affecting people’s lives and livelihoods. For Maine’s iconic fishing industry, known for its sustainable management of marine resources, commercial aquaculture can be a part of the solution.

Investing in an Ocean Economy

Arturo Tabuenca
Blue Marble Investments and Earthfolio
The Earth is a water world covered by vast oceans and a sheltering atmosphere. All life emanates from and is sustained by this watery cradle. Every breath we take, every drop we drink, every aqueous cell that binds our physical being; reminds us that we are water creatures. The sheer immensity of our oceans has made them appear impervious to man’s presence. But they are not.

Ensuring Planetary Stability - Banks as Unlikely Allies? by David Barmes and Marya Skotte

Ensuring Planetary Stability: Banks as Unlikely Allies?

David Barmes and Marya Skotte
Climate Safe Lending Network
Of all the types of institutions playing a role in averting catastrophic climate change, banks are perhaps unlikely protagonists. Yet by the everyday process of allocating capital and issuing loans to clients, lenders can be powerful allies or destructive antagonists in the fight for a climate-safe world. The impact of their lending has significance on the climate, our ecosystems and overall planetary stability.
