It’s our mission to make Earth Day every day by connecting institutional capital with sustainable investment strategies that address some of the world’s most pressing challenges. There are many effective programs that you can consider to support Earth Day, but keep reading to see who we support…
Back in the day… I used to commute 60 miles a day to a big office space and fly 100,000 miles a year while eating an enormous amount of meat every day. My carbon footprint today is much smaller, with no commute, an empty-nester-bedroom that we converted to an office/gym, zero flights this year and no meat in my diet anymore. Regardless, I think we can always do more and I believe it is our responsibility to leave the planet the same (or better) for our children, so to do my part, I’ve adopted several other strategies to move my carbon footprint to net zero (or even net POSITIVE)…
This year will be my 14th year of growing my MOustache (aka “MO) with Movember. I grow my MO to honor my father-in-law, who passed away from prostate cancer + our friend & teammate who we lost this year + the many friends who reach out when addressing their own health issues + to raise awareness and literally and figuratively change the face of men’s health. Movember is a fun approach to serious issues (testicular cancer for younger men + prostate cancer for older men + mental health for all of us), so I hope when you see our MOs that you will check yourself + remember to schedule your annual physicals + reach out if you need a friend.
Roho the elephant is almost 3-years old now and he is doing well! Our journey began during an exploratory Zoom call, when I was asked about my ‘elephant’ logo. I shared my respect and concern for elephants and how I simply wanted to honor them within my logo, so that it would serve as a reminder that we need to protect the world around us. My contact then told me that he was originally from Kenya and that he recently adopted an orphaned elephant through the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (SWT), and I immediately did the same. I’m proud to share that we’ve renewed our adoption and support of Roho for another year!
Impact Capital Partners has joined The Ocean Foundation (TOF) in their effort to plant and protect coastal wetlands to fight climate change. This amazing non-profit organization has widely promoted the concept of Blue Carbon — the capacity of the natural ecosystems of seagrasses, tidal marshes and mangroves to sequester large quantities of carbon in both the plants themselves and the sediment below.
Impact Capital Partners was founded with the goal of connecting institutional investors with impact investments. To simplify the process, we created our proprietary ImpactBrowser™ so that institutional investors can find and choose impact opportunities that match their needs.
Impact Capital Partners has joined Trees For The Future (TREES) in their Plant-a-Tree Partnership by planting 200 trees per million dollars raised. This amazing non-profit organization has planted over 180 million trees since 1989 and we are proud to help TREES plant communities out of hunger and poverty, while also offsetting multiples of our own carbon emissions.
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!
