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).
