Action to prevent climate change helps investors, businesses

By Jonas D. Kron, Sacramento Bee. 

Climate change is the defining investment issue of our generation. As a firm that manages more than $2 billion in assets, we understand the financial risks of a warming planet – and the opportunities in driving clean-energy investments and reducing greenhouse-gas emissions. Which is why we support Senate Bill 32, which will continue California’s progress on mitigating climate change, and why we are meeting with legislators Wednesday to discuss its merits.

The future is clean energy, and California is setting the pace. Here, better than anyplace in the world, people understand the importance of leading innovation and gaining a competitive advantage.
