Greenvest Becomes the First SRI Firm Selected for New .eco Domain
Wells, Vermont: Greenvest, a New England-based investment firm specializing in socially and environmentally responsible investing, has become the first socially responsible investment (SRI) firm to receive a .eco domain. Launched on April 25th, .eco is a new top-level domain (web address ending) for companies, institutions, non-profits and individuals who have proven their commitment to positive change for the planet.
The .eco domain is backed by more than 50 environmental and other organizations including Rainforest Action Network, United Nations Global Compact and the World Wildlife Fund, and is the only top-level domain endorsed by the global environmental community.
Greenvest is a team of Financial Advisors with collectively 28 years of SRI experience who provide personal consulting on socially responsible investing, then create custom investment portfolios that align with each client’s individual social values and financial goals. Whether it be organic food, clean energy or community development, Greenvest believes investments can be used as a powerful force for social change.
“We’re honored to have been chosen as the first socially responsibly investment firm approved for the .eco domain,” said Greenvest co-founder Todd Walker, “not only to help launch this great initiative, but also as another way of demonstrating Greenvest’s commitment to working and investing for the greater good. Now more than ever, we must stand up for the Earth and social justice. .Eco finally provides an easy way everyone can immediately identify organizations, businesses and people who have proven to do just thatlinux mint
Jacob Malthouse, co-founder of .eco, echoed this sentiment: “We’re delighted to welcome Greenvest as the first SRI advisor in the .eco community. Their socially and environmentally responsible investment values align with our mission to make positive change for the planet. We look forward to growing together.”
While the public launch of .eco occurred on April 25, Greenvest was selected as an early adopter through .eco’s “Champions” program, comprised of the first 100 recipients of .eco domains. Champion companies will be showcased over the coming months as model .eco domains for their sustainable missions, as .eco works for widescale adoption of the domain worldwide.
Whether it’s a campaign to protect a special place in the world, the launch of a new business or product that will help people make better choices, or a new address for an existing online presence, .eco will now help conscious organizations, businesses and people to get recognition for the good work they do.
And Greenvest is proud to now be among them.
