Many long-time donors and partners have helped us grow from a small team of staff and volunteers to today’s high-impact, nationally recognized organization. One of those is Genus Capital Management.
Since 2004, Genus has sponsored events, supported the David Suzuki Fellowship program, bought our holiday cards for staff and clients and — most recently — backed our Butterflyway webinars. Genus Capital CEO Wayne Wachell, the leadership team and portfolio managers are all deeply dedicated to our mission, as are many of Genus’ environmentally conscious clients.
We hired Genus to meet our financial and sustainability goals so we could scale our activist and educational work. And Genus is a natural partner for us. A Certified B Corporation, it’s an independent investment management firm that offers fossil free and impact investment portfolios. Its commitment to sustainability, innovation and impact has defined its approach to investing for more than 30 years. Impact and sustainable investing have grown to become the core of many companies’ investment offerings since then, after decades of evolution designed to meet the needs of investors who are passionate about climate action.

The environmental movement has entered a period where many people are wondering how to divest from fossil fuels and “put their money where their mouth is.” Genus views the divestment of carbon intensive industries, and the shift to making impact through investment portfolios, as a social movement. We’re grateful for Genus’ support over the years, and for the many ways it is “impacting the future today.”
