The digital format allows for a streamlined and interactive means to experience The Trust’s annual activities.
Each year, The Trust strives for transparency in reporting on our meaningful progress with partners, clients, and stakeholders. The 2016 edition features extensive financial and programmatic information, as well as project milestones, access to our Point of View guest author series, and comments direct from our partners.
A few words from Sean Penrith, Executive Director for The Climate Trust:
“The Trust’s 2016 activities included efforts to build a sizable, quality pipeline for our pilot carbon investment fund, while also helping to create a supportive policy environment for our climate-friendly activities. Our strategy saw us banding together with other industry professionals to ensure a continued role for offsets in a post-2020 California carbon reduction program, and we are proud of the leadership role we played in this ad hoc effort. There is much potential for positive climate impact that will come with the official roll out of Fund I in 2017—we’re very much looking forward to seeing our impact dollars in action.”
