A Global Network of Animal Health Professionals Concerned About Climate Change and the Environment
Exciting news about one of the largest veterinary profession organizations, the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
After suggestions from member diplomates last year, the ACVIM has adopted responsible investing practices for its institutional investments.
This is still a way off from fossil fuel divestment, but it's a big step in the right direction!!
The most recent ACVIM "Message from the President" opens with the following:
"The Board of Regents, following the recommendation of the Finance, Investment and Audit Committee (FIAC), voted to invest our global equity portfolios in a socially responsible manner by proactively screening for Environmental, Social and Governance issues, i.e. ESG Investing. ESG Investing seeks to own a portfolio of companies that are best in class based on scoring for performance on environment, social, and governance issues. "
Nice work ACVIM!!
