Earth Equity’s approach is simple, because it all comes down to three focus points.
We Help You Invest Positively by Asking, “What Do We Want to Own?”
We invest in companies that show leadership and dedication to progressive business practices.
The strategy begins by using a screening process. Excluding fossil fuels from our portfolios frees up capital to support companies that make a positive difference in the world. This means that the portfolio is inclusive of best-in-class companies while excluding the worst corporate offenders. This is based on a number of metrics including:
- Environmental track record & sustainability
- Corporate governance, business ethics & transparency
- Product safety
- Fair & safe workplace
- International human rights
- Community involvement
We Help You Use Your Voice and Power As A Shareholder
We help you use group influence as shareholders to be advocates for better corporate policies. This is done in two ways: direct engagement and proxy voting. We believe that Shareholder Advocacy empowers our clients to be changemakers with their investment dollars.
Shareholder Advocacy Issues Include:
- Environmental Practices
- Corporate Transparency
- Lobbying & Political Spending
- Employment Equality
- Executive Compensation
We Help You Create Positive Change In Your Community (Local and Abroad)
Investing in local economies creates positive social change.
The old adage, “Change begins at home” is true in our hearts. We are passionate about the environment, social good, and local strength.
We work with our clients to direct a percentage of their capital into smaller, community-based investments, both domestically and abroad. These responsible investments provide opportunities to entrepreneurs and community services including healthcare, housing, education and childcare.
