Welcome to the special 200th issue of GreenMoney…yes, 200 and going strong!
For this commemorative issue we are looking back and including many of our Readers’ Favorites, i.e., the most-read articles according to Google Analytics. We have also included a few of our own favorite GreenMoney articles, videos and podcasts. While researching, I looked back at our special 150th issue (from January 2020) and realized once again the articles are still quite interesting – so consider checking those out as well.
by Carole Liable, CEO of Domini Impact Investments
For women-led and impact leading Domini Impact Investments, sustainable investing isn’t a trend; it’s a tradition. CEO Carole Laible explains what’s ahead for sustainable investing in 2022—and why women are the ones that will continue to power its momentum.
The Forthcoming $30 Trillion Wealth Transfer to Women
by Theresa Gusman, Chief Investment Officer of First Affirmative Financial Network
An enormous transfer of wealth is underway in America that presents an historic opportunity for the financial services industry and specifically for women advisors and customized ESG investing. Female advisors – though they are outnumbered by their male counterparts by more than four to one – are better positioned to guide the clients on the receiving end of this transfer.
by Elizabeth di Bonaventura, Senior Institutional Relationship Associate, Domini Impact Investments.
The road less traveled has always been the path I’ve found myself on in life, whether intentionally or not. As a young girl, I did not grow up believing that I would have a career in finance. I was beguiled by misconceptions that the field was too difficult and the bar for entry too insurmountably high. Even more daunting was the lack of representation of women within the financial sector.
by David Weinstein, Senior VP and Portfolio Manager of Dana Investment Advisors
What a time to be a tech savvy millennial investor. A chaotic 2020 offered both investment pitfalls and rich opportunities. 2021 should trend toward a more “normal” environment, but disruptive companies, elevated volatility and information everywhere will continue to define the investment landscape. These three themes have millennials positioned to thrive - Disruption, Embracing Volatility, and Information Everywhere.

“Why climate finance,” you might ask? In 25 years of reporting on sustainable business, I have become fascinated by the pivotal relationship between capital and innovative solutions to climate-related issues.
by Suzanna Buck, Senior Impact Investment Associate at Domini Impact Investments (named to the 30 Under 30 list at The SRI Conference in Nov 2019)
I might be the only ecologist on Wall Street, but I don’t mind. It’s exactly where I want to be: after a winding journey through field research, advocacy, and legal work, I believe changing the financial system may be the most effective solution to climate change.
by Jessye Waxman, Green Century Capital Management
As a shareholder advocate for an environmentally-responsible mutual fund company, I directly engage companies on their supply chain strategies and have successfully convinced them to adopt practices that have real-world impacts that protect a triple bottom line. I’ve collaborated with Aramark and Tyson Foods to develop robust no-deforestation commitments, and have successfully pressed Kroger, the largest grocery chain in the US, to adopt a no-deforestation policy that will cover its private label products.
