Bloomberg Green - The Biden administration is outlining ambitions to dramatically boost offshore wind power in the U.S. by 2030, pushing to drive construction of projects at sea capable of generating enough electricity for more than 10 million American homes.

Over the past 13 years they have transitioned their thermal operations from heavy oil and liquified petroleum gas to natural gas + they built their own private pipeline network + their long-term ambition is to deliver 100% clean electricity across Africa by 2035 + net-zero emissions by 2050.

I launched Impact Capital Partners because I obviously agree with Bill Gates that it is important to address the world’s most difficult issues. The essence of How To Avoid A Climate Disaster is that we are putting 51 billion tons of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere every year, and to avoid a climate disaster, we need to get the net number to ZERO within 30 years. Importantly, Bill is optimistic that we can solve these problems because of his belief in innovation, but we need breakthroughs to get there. Bill is focused on this challenge, and one of his goals for writing this book is to spark conversations so that we are all focused on it too. I highly recommend this book and I’m even placing it on my MUST READ LIST!

Wind is one of the planet’s most efficient renewable power sources and offshore winds tend to blow harder and more uniformly than on land. Yesterday, the New York State Energy and Development Authority (NYSERDA) selected Equinor and incoming strategic partners bp to transform two of New York’s ports into large-scale offshore wind working facilities in hopes of positioning New York as an offshore wind industry hub.

This year was my 13th year of growing my mustache (aka “MO) with Movember. I first grew my MO back in 2008 in honor of my father-in-law, Bruce Gibson, who passed away from prostate cancer, Movember’s flagship cause. Raising awareness and funds for Movember was a great fit for me, because it was a fun approach to a serious problem, and for 9 consecutive years (2009-2017) I was Movember’s top fundraiser in the US (aka the “MoMo” or the individual who raised the MOst MOney). Importantly, my work and my success with Movember reminded me to have fun and be passionate about what you do! #movember #menshealthissues

During an exploratory Zoom today, I was asked again about my logo, so I shared my respect and concern for elephants and how I simply wanted to honor them within my logo. My new contact then told me that he was originally from Kenya and that he recently adopted an orphaned elephant through the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (SWT). I immediately researched SWT and I'm proud to say that we adopted Roho the elephant today!

The Age of Sustainable Development, an online course by Professor Jeffrey Sachs, is a wonderful introduction and overview of WHY we need the sixth Kondratiev Wave to be a wave of sustainable technologies. In Prof. Sachs words, we need to find ways to produce energy, ways to mobilize energy, ways to transport ourselves and transport goods that take the massive pressure and the destructive forces off of our ecosystems. This is the great challenge ahead of us, and this course is an amazing way to better understand this challenge!

I spent the first half of my life on the East Coast and the second half on the West Coast…. from Manhattan to Manhattan Beach. In 2020 I launched Impact Capital Partners to make a difference in my own way - by creating a platform to facilitate the flow of capital from institutional investors to “impact investments.”

Through Impact Capital Partners, I hope to make it easier for institutional investors to find and invest in impact investments, because I believe that as larger dollar amounts seek investments with market-rate returns AND positive social impact, we will have a better chance of solving the world’s toughest problems!

Sustainable-Packaging

An investment alongside our EM Private Debt manager provides financing to a Sustainable Packaging Manufacturer in Ecuador whose roots trace back to 1955, when it began as a corrugated cardboard distributor primarily focused on the exportation of bananas. Since then, the company has developed into a sustainable, vertically-integrated packaging manufacturer sourcing raw material primarily from recycled paper and recycled cardboard procured through multiple local and international partnerships.

This is a great explainer video by The Conservation Fund on land-based fish farming. 90% of US seafood is currently imported and 2x the current supply will be needed by 2050, so there is a growing need for new ways to provide high-quality, local fish without putting more pressure on our oceans. Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) is one solution.

ARTIFISHAL is a Patagonia film about man’s disastrous approach to Nature, including river dams & open-water fish-farms, that are leading to the weakening and extinction of species. I believe that Sustainable Fish Farms are one of the important steps needed to protect our wild fish!

The Ivory Game is an undercover documentary by Paul Allen’s Vulcan Productions that exposes the ugly world of ivory trading. I first saw African elephants in 1983 in Kenya and was moved by their majestic presence. Even today I try to pay my respect to their plight by honoring them within my logo.

Four Fish was an eye opening journey that I highly recommend if you are interested in the future of our oceans and the fish that live there. Greenberg does a wonderful job of blending his personal narrative with the science and mega trends that are driving aquaculture to be the fastest growing food production system on the planet. It is hard not to get HOOKED by this book!

An investment alongside our EM Private Debt manager, this grain trading and processing company operating in Uganda has a vision to feed East Africa sustainably through a regionally-integrated formal system for grain production and exchange that helps transform rural lives and creates stakeholder value.

Investment assets dwarf philanthropy and aid, so the simple message is that if we can align our investments with our beliefs, we can have an impact on the world… and, thus the term... “Impact Investing.”
