Earth911 talks about the challenge of making ethical and environmentally responsible investment decisions with Newday Impact CEO Doug Heske. Newday Impact is a financial services company that creates and manages a variety of socially and environmentally themed portfolios, which make it easy to invest to support your values. We dig into choosing stocks based on the greenhouse gas emissions produced by agriculture and agribusiness, with a quick look at the progress at Whole Foods and Amazon.
The news here is not good – industry continues to churn out more CO2 each year rather than less and Newday’s opinion of the companies we’ll discuss today reflects that lack of progress. We focus on Simply Good Foods (SMPL), Xylem (XYL), Darling Ingredients (DAR), Hain Celestial Group (HAIN), Bunge (BG), Novozymes (an OTC-traded Danish company, NVZMY), and the biggest of the big, Amazon (AMZN).
