Jeffrey Burch, managing director, Southwest Food and Agribusiness at Bank of the West, recently sat down with Jeremy Barnicle, executive director of Ecotrust, an Oregon-based organization that fosters economic opportunity, social equity, and environmental well-being, and 2017 Innovation Award winner in our annual Philanthropy Awards.
Barnicle talked about the importance of using market-oriented tools to promote Ecotrust’s mission – to restore the environment and grow economic opportunities, as part of the Nasdaq Entrepreneurship Center’s “Intersection of Entrepreneurship & Climate Innovation” event, sponsored by Bank of the West and held in conjunction with the recent Global Climate Action Summit.
“To see how you can use for-profit entities to help advance social or environmental outcome is really great,” Barnicle noted.
