Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility Celebrates 25th Anniversary

by Stephen Morris                         1000512 242
Why Here? Why Now? Why VBSR?

Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, the state’s second largest trade organization for businesses, is now 25 years young. How did it happen, and why here?

Mike Burak says it all began with an article called “Taking Over Vermont” by Richard Pollak, published in the April, 1972 issue of Playboy. Pollak, tongue firmly in cheek wrote: “Suppose the nation’s alienated young decided to stage a takeover of Vermont. Not by staging a weekend rock festival at Rutland and then hanging around the Green Mountains like freaked-out trolls. Not by lacing the water supply with assorted chemical brain scramblers. Not even by trashing the 14-karat-gold-leaf dome off the Statehouse in Montpelier. Suppose they decided to do it by the book, within the system, the hard-hat-approved American way — by ballot.”

“I thought it was a great vision,” says Burak, a native of Winooski who left his home state to complete a law degree at Harvard and to cut his legal teeth with Manhattan-based law firms before returning home. “The hippies would take over Vermont. I was all for it!”

Good Greed

Since you’re reading the Green Money Journal it’s likely that you’ve already made the mental shift to sustainability, and if that’s the case, welcome! I believe that shift happens one mind at a time, one company, one technology, one university curriculum, one industry, one community at a time. Furthermore, I have never met a “former environmentalist.” It’s true! Once you understand the truth and complexity of our environmental challenges, you are forever changed. My story demonstrates that. And fortunately for us and for our planet, that collective mental shift seems to be happening quickly, particularly in the important field of green building.

Co-ops Build a Better World

by Erbin Crowell                         1000500 779

In the wake of a global recession that continues to devastate communities and livelihoods, people are hungry for alternatives to corporate greed and stock market speculation. As we look at challenges such as climate change, unemployment and growing disparities of wealth and ownership, many of us feel discouraged and unsure of how we can make business more accountable to our communities and our visions for more just, sustainable, and resilient economies.

Debunking the myth of lower SRI performance

by Todd Walker                         1000487 917

In my role as a financial advisor specializing in socially responsible investing (SRI) I am often asked whether social investments – those screened for such activities as gambling, alcohol, nuclear power, pollution and poor employee conditions – perform as well as conventional ones. In fact, what surprises me is how pervasive the opinion is that SRI investments may be good for society, but not for your wealth.
