Towards a Sustainable Investment Network

Having sent the accounts to all contributors was the essential closure for the St. James’s event.

It means that I can now pursue with renewed vigour what Dr. Yunus’ book enthused me into doing: raise funds for the Sustainable Investment Network.

I do hope that it will become one of the first true ‘social businesses‘ according to the Yunus definitions!

  1. As a social business the E=MC2 Company, we believe that a Sustainability Investment Nework will be of a great benefit to society. Our Green Stock Exchange will be a great way to raise sustainable funds, while providing liquidity for investors.

    The Investment network you propose will be based on a double bottom line (economics + sustainability) or a triple (economics + sustainability + social) bottom line.

    Example, what if a company uses child labour to produce solar panels? It will still be sustainable, but probably not acceptable to society’s values.
