Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 16 aprile 2019

Morgan Stanley’s Institute for Sustainable Investing and Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management in the U.S. today announced that Carbon Yield Fund was named the winner of the 2019 Kellogg-Morgan Stanley Sustainable Investing Challenge. The team was one of 12 finalists competing in the Challenge at Morgan Stanley’s Hong Kong offices on Friday. The team proposed a solution to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by increasing organic farming practices.The Carbon Yield Fund would provide loans to Midwestern farms in the United States that begin the organic certification process, then monetize emissions reductions associated with regenerative organic agriculture through an aggregated carbon offset program, documenting and marketing credits on behalf of the farmers. This additional revenue would help offset transition costs for farms and return capital to the fund’s investors.Now in its ninth year, the Kellogg-Morgan Stanley Sustainable Investing Challenge is an annual global competition designed to inspire future leaders to develop innovative financial vehicles to help address environmental, social and governance challenges. The 12 finalist teams were selected from 365 students, hailing from 50 countries. They represent 80 graduate schools and their projects targeted impact in 31 countries.The winning team consisted of Tom Fields, David Mallett, Claire Pluard and Sam Schiller from the United States.This year’s runner-up was the Grey to Green Fund, who proposed a solution to help reduce hotels’ water consumption throughout the United States. They designed a multi-asset fund that would act as a market aggregator for hotel greywater infrastructure.
The Challenge seeks to inspire the next generation of sustainable investing practitioners, connect emerging leaders with industry professionals, and foster greater emphasis on sustainable finance at graduate schools around the world. More information on this year’s finalists and winner can be found on Morgan Stanley’s website. You can also follow the conversation on social media with #SIChallenge.
