You hear a lot these days about sustainable living and everything that it encompasses for our environment and way of life. In fact, it’s one of the most important steps we can take to leave a better world, for our children and grandchildren to inherit someday. But those steps have to start somewhere.
We were pleased to find that Tobias Read has taken steps to learn more about sustainable investing, and what it can mean for the Portland area. We found this interesting article about the situation in the Portland Tribune.
“Oregon State Treasurer Tobias Read is convening a Sustainable Investing Summit in Portland next month, bringing in heavy hitters from some of the world’s largest investment firms. Featured guests include executives from Blackrock, Goldman Sachs Asset Management, KKR & Co., Calvert mutual fund company and others. Gina McCarthy, the former EPA director, is one of the keynote speakers.”
