Fossil Fuel Free Investing

The pooled endowment funds of the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust are invested in partnership with Genus Capital Management, a pioneer in Canada’s divest-invest movement. Genus ensures our funds are not invested in the fossil fuel industry, along with other socially and environmentally harmful industries, aligning our investments with our long-standing commitment to living sustainably. 

We prioritize our social and environmental values to ensure returns are not generated by activities that contribute to the global issues we work to resolve locally. The CBT has been recognized as a leader in ethical investing in the community foundations sector.

"Fossil fuel free investments have given us another means of delivering on our mission, not just locally, but as a global citizen."

- Rebecca Hurwitz, CBT Executive Director
