September 19, 2019

London, United KingdomClearlySo, Europe’s leading impact investment bank, announces that it is officially backing the Global Climate Strike planned for Friday, 20th September. Taking place in cities around the world, the Global Climate Strike’s goal is to raise awareness of and demand action from policy makers to combat climate change.

ClearlySo joins a growing list of well-known companies backing the strike, including Patagonia, Burton, Ben & Jerry’s and Lush.

Commenting on the decision, ClearlySo CEO Rod Schwartz: “ClearlySo is fundamentally about changing the way financial markets work so that productive, societally beneficial and sustainable investments become the norm.  As a result, we wholeheartedly back the goals and objectives of the Climate Strike and have supported all our staff who choose to participate.  Whilst there are many causes which come to our attention and which our clients address, this one is existential, and needs to be taken extremely seriously.  In the meantime, in our day-to-day work we help firms that are making a huge and positive difference to the environment such as Upside Energy, Bulb, Tonik, Oddbox, LettusGrow and many others.”
