Environmental professionals hold a unique span of knowledge that is well tailored to positively contribute to the field of sustainability. While environmental factors are just one aspect of sustainability, they are a key aspect. An increased pressure from investors and consumers on organizations to more seriously approach sustainability and environmental efforts has presented a great opportunity for environmental professionals to utilize their skills in this growing field.
Further, in recent years, an even greater level of interest from investors has been evolving, leading to the emergence of Sustainable, Responsible, Impact Investing (SRI). SRI investing, which places importance on environmental responsibility, among other sustainable interests, is a strong driver for organizations, large and small, to embrace sustainability. However, those interested in pursuing a sustainable business may not have the tools to do so, and this is where those with environmental expertise can help.
This featured speaker/networking program, sponsored by the EBC Young Environmental Professionals Committee, will feature Sean Fair, CRPC, AAMS, an SRI Investment Advisor and Managing Principle of Waymark Wealth Management LLC. He will discuss his own background in the fields of science and mathematics, and how they lead him to SRI investing.
Other items discussed will include a brief overview of SRI investing; its growing importance to consumers, and organizations; and finally where SRI investing fits into the larger picture, including the environmental professional’s potential role in industry, as well as the individual’s role related to other choices made to shape our environment/world.
